Cheaper by the Dozen was one of the first memoirs I read as a child. I remember laughing the entire way through the book. My imagination ran wild trying to picture this large quirky family.
The father of the family is an efficiency expert who believes he can run his own family efficiently and cheaply. The mom is his right hand 'man' but doesn't seem to be much of a disciplinarian. Toss in a dozen kids and you get quite this hilarious account!
The antics of the children and the experiments of the father make for some very enjoyable reading. I guarantee a smile will cross your face at least once during the reading of this book.
