Kurzbeschreibung

The classic American memoir of twelve kids, two parents, and a world of laughter and love

Translated into more than fifty languages and adapted into two classic motion pictures, Cheaper by the Dozen is the unforgettable story of the Gilbreth clan as told by two of its members. In this endearing, amusing memoir, siblings Frank Jr. and Ernestine capture the hilarity and heart of growing up in an oversized family.

Mother and Dad are world-renowned efficiency experts, helping factories fine-tune their assembly lines for maximum output at minimum cost. At home, the Gilbreths themselves have cranked out twelve kids, and Dad is out to prove that efficiency principles can apply to family as well as the workplace. The heartwarming and comic stories of the jumbo-sized Gilbreth clan have delighted generations of readers, and will keep you and yours laughing for years.

This ebook features an illustrated biography including rare photos from the authors’ estates.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good but, sorry to say, disappointing! 2. Februar 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
My mother-in-law told me this is the book she read when she was expecting my husband - she jokes that my husband is such a funny person because she had to laugh so much reading this book back then during pregnancy! With such a high expectation of the level of humor I began reading the book and was quite disappointed. The contained humor was somehow overshadowed by the overpowering and "ever present" description of the father. Only toward his death (and the end of the book) did he seem more sypathetic (and therefore also that part of the book) and "humble". The mother, Lillian, seems to be his close companion but still she is underrepresented, while Frank seems to be the children's superstar. I believe the book was written with much love and humor but the "overpowering" father just did the job to spoil it for me. Too bad. Still, I'm sure others could enjoy it very much.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What a great book! 19. Januar 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN
Format: Paperback,1st ed., 180 pages ISBN: 0553272500 Publisher: Bantam Doubleday Dell Books for Younger Readers Pub. Date: February 1981 Other Formats: Hardback Recommended Age:Third grade and up
Wonderful...Once you start to read the first page you wont be able to put the book down. This perfect way to spend a rainy day. You will be very amused when you read about the hilarious events of the Gilbreth family. The family of twelve children have many adventures you will enjoy reading. The father is almost crazy and a very successful business man. He is very strict and overprotective. He won't let his daughters wear make up or dress the way they like to. They slowly change his mind and begin to dress their way. He thinks his children can do anything and is also believed he could do anything. He loved jokes and laughing and you will love the practical jokes they play on each other. The rich family loves to go to movies then out for ice cream. They also spend their summers at the beach, where their Dad forces them to learn to swim. He wants them to learn as much as possible about everything so he always finds a way to teach them new things. As an efficiency expert he made sure that everything was done in a time efficient way. It was a sin to waste time in the Gilbreth house and he was constantly coming up with new ways to save time. The Dad in the story liked to parade around and show off his kids. Although this was embarassing to some of the kids as they got older Dad found it hilarious. The mother also was sometimes embarrassed or insulted by the attention they got or the comments other people made. This book will keep you laughing right up to the last chapter when Dad dies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A brilliant work of the Gilbreth children! 12. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book shows a firsthand account of the wonderous life of an extremely large family. Around that era and before then, large families like the Gilbreth's was not as unusual as you may think. But not many had the unique upbrining of motion studiers. The information that Mr. Gilbreth conveyed to his very lucky children made their lives complete. And may I commend Mrs. Gilbreth, on her liveliness and spirit, and all the energy she had to have to raise 11 children all alone (with alltile help from Tom of course!) And the way all the children managed so well to economize and forfeit some of their pleasures for each other shows strong character and love to the roots. Any good writer could make up a story like this one, but what gives this one charm and shine is the reality of it all. These things really happened! It is amzing to witness the love and adventure of the Gilbreth house.
