Cheaper by the Dozen - September 2008

We're taking a short break in August, as the library gets ready for the new school year.

In September, we'll be picking up with Cheaper by the Dozen, by Frank B. Gilbreth Jr., and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey.

How many of you read this book in school? I read this first when I was in sixth grade (and got into trouble over it, but more about that later!)

I never realized there was a much deeper story behind this book. Frank and Ernestine really emphasized the humor when they wrote this book. The back story is just fascinating!

So get your copy now and start reading...

Hardcover
Large Print
DVD


Note that this book has virtually nothing in common with the movie by the same name, that was made around 2003. (The DVD above is the 1950 version that is based on the book.)
