Funny and Interesting

by Linda C on Jun 16, 2011

Although it doesn't probe the deeper psychological issues of being a child among twelve siblings, this story of the Gilbreth family is a fascinating and funny read.


Influenced my life!

My 6th grade teacher read this book (and Belles on Their Toes) to our class one year. I fell in love with the family (as did many other students). I still remember the ideas Mr. Gilbreth had to make his family more efficient. I have to admit that because of this book, and the lovable characters, I find myself constantly trying to streamline things in my own life. I love this book! A few years ago I purchased the hardback editions to add to my library. They were not cheap, so I am happy to see paperbacks available as such an affordable price. These make excellent gifts. This book is heartwarming and loving. Full of humor and life.

Cheaper By the Dozen is a moving story documenting the lives of the LARGE Gilbreth family. In it a father and mother ingeniously raise eleven children. I thought it was well-written and is a good example of what every family goes through. It teaches us that in spite of difficulty it is important to stick together. I believe that it is a wonderful story that should be read in every household.
