He tells the story of his family, his hard-working businessman father, his responsible and caring housewife mother,his adventurous brother, his kind sister.
He meets and relates to a rich cast of colorful characters, not only in his First Street neighborhood and community, but in School 10 and Sharei Tefilah Shul , at the baseball park, Hawkins Stadium in Richman's gambling joint on River Street and on the Junk truck with his father and brother.
Above all he gives in the freshness and innocence of a young child's colloquial voice his experience as he encounters life 's daily challenges and mysteries.
