A feel good middle school story about a Harlem family, the Vanderbeekers. A family of five children, parents, dog and rabbit, they live in a brownstone in Harlem, which they can afford because the father acts as the superintendent. The family and neighborhood are both very caring, but there is a pending disaster: their landlord, Mr. Beiderman, decides not to renew their lease, and they have to move right after Christmas. While the parents are packing and worried about whether they can even afford to stay in the neighborhood, the children decide to start their own campaign to convince the Beiderman to renew their lease, with their various unorthodox approaches. Cute. ( )

What a terrific family! I'm so glad I met them and I'm really looking forward to the next one. Very real characters. Good for those who loved All of a Kind Family or the Melendys. Both Christmas and race are parts of the story, but just background elements. I loved the give and take the trying and making mistakes and trying again.

I think this title, The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street by Karina Yan Glaser was automatically recommended to me after I read the Penderwicks series and I now can see why. Lots of similarities between the two series: wholesome, large family of kids with various strengths in the arts, science, music, sports and all around cuteness. And adorable family pets!
This series takes place in Harlem, has an interesting multi-racial family (I don't believe the races are actually mentioned nor does the cover art give any clues, which I found endearing), a interesting neighborhood of friends, sweet family dynamics, a mean landlord and a problem to solve regarding the brownstone that they have lived in for many years.
This juvenile fiction is also the first of a series. On to the next adventure with this lovely family! ( )

Karina Yan Glaser delivers a charming family story and a delightfully heartwarming Christmas tale with her debut children's novel, The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street. When the five Vanderbeeker siblings - twelve-year-old twins, Isa and Jessie, nine-year-old Oliver, six-year-old Hyacinth, and four-year-old Laney - discover that they are in danger of losing their home, they are terribly dismayed. They have always lived at the brownstone at 141st Street, in New York City's Harlem, and they have always had a close relationship with all of their neighbors. Can they convince Mr. Beiderman - the notorious recluse and misanthrope who owns their building, and who stays shut in his apartment on the top floor - to renew their lease, or will this Christmas be their last at 141st Street...?

Comprised of six sections, one each devoted to the days ranging from December 20th through December 25th, The Vandebeekers of 141st Street reads like a contemporary update of some of the classics of American children's literature. The eponymous family is biracial, and their circle of friends is diverse, but this is dealt with in a matter-of-fact way, and never feels like the focus of the story. There is a warmhearted goodness to this tale of family and community, and I enjoyed pretty much everything about it. The children feel like believable characters, their concerns and brief quarrels relatable and sympathetic. Mama and Papa make for appealing parents, and the family pets are adorable (although the cat-lover in me would have liked more about the feline George Washington). I appreciated the fact that this was set in a contemporary New York City, but not a gritty, grim one. The conclusion of the story, in which the explanation for Mr. Beiderman's behavior is revealed, and the issue of the Vanderbeekers' home happily resolved, is entirely appropriate for a Christmas tale, making me wish I had read this one at that time of year. Highly recommended to anyone in the market for new family stories for the middle-grade set! ( )

Just the cutest, sweetest little Christmas-is-saved story of the cutest, sweetest (not so) little family. ( )
