My tween daughter and I have a nightly reading ritual. Usually, we pick fantasy series, but recently I thought it would be good to broaden her horizons with a classic. We had Cheaper By the Dozen on our shelves, so I showed it to her. She wasn't enthusiastic about it, but I asked her to just try listening to a couple of chapters and if she didn't like it, she could choose another book. Needless to say, she loved it! I'm glad that we used it for reading aloud because while her reading level is very high, there are some very old-fashioned words and concepts that she didn't "get" and we were able to talk about them, e.g. mumbly peg.

Cheaper by the Dozen is easily among the Top 5 books I have ever read. I received it as a gift when I was 12-13 years old, and have read it countless times since. Each time I have split my sides laughing, and each time this book has left me with a feeling of deep contentment. I recommend it to everyone who loves a good story.

"Synopsis" by ,

What do you get when you put twelve lively kids together with a father — a famous efficiency expert — who believes families can run like factories, and a mother who is his partner in everything except discipline? You get a hilarious tale of growing up that has made generations of kids and adults alike laugh along with the Gilbreths in Cheaper by the Dozen.

Translated into more than fifty-three languages and made into a classic film starring Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy, Cheaper by the Dozen is a delightfully enduring story of family life at the turn of the 20th century.
