Cheaper By The Dozen Review

There is a great book that I remember reading while in high school called Cheaper By The Dozen, written in 1948. The author of the book is Frank Gilbreth. The title of the book is based on an answer Mr. Gilbreth gave to someone when asked why he and Mrs. Gilbreth had so many children.

There is a great book that I remember reading while in high school called Cheaper By The Dozen, written in 1948. The author of the book is Frank Gilbreth. The title of the book is based on an answer Mr. Gilbreth gave to someone when asked why he and Mrs. Gilbreth had so many children.

It is often used as a book for english classes during junior high or high school. The book is based on the authors own family. He and his wife had twelve children. The book tells the story of how he and his wife found the best way to raise a family with that many children. Mrs. Gilbreth was an engineer and Mr. Gilbreth was more of an efficiency expert.

Imagine trying to raise children when you both try to do things in slightly different ways. Mr. Gilbreth was more of the disciplinarian. Having twelve children makes this an even more daunting task. There are some very funny things that happen in this book as the couple goes through everything from new-born to the growing pains of a pre teen and up. Very funny book that one would have no problem sitting down and reading. Be careful though, Cheaper by the dozen just might have you laughing out loud.

Cheaper by the dozen does have a sequel also. The title to the sequel is Belles on their toes. Cheaper By the Dozen has also been made into movies twice. The first movie was done in 1950. It’s main stars were Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy. The second time the book was made into a movie was in 2003 and it stared Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt. The first movie was based more on the book then the one made in 2003.

Cheaper by the dozen might also stand to mean saving money when buying things by purchasing them in bulk. There are many warehouse stores that have opened up over the past 10 years or so that cater to this type of shopping. Things can be bought in large bundles and for a cheaper price. Paper towels, toilet paper, soap, tooth paste and many other staples that most families need can be bought at a better discount price.
