Cheaper by the Dozen Book Review

Dispel from your minds any idea of movie adaptations. We are talking BOOKS here!
“Cheaper by the Dozen” and “Belles on Their Toes” by Frank Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey

The dedication of the book says: “To Dad, who only reared twelve children. and To Mother, who reared twelve only children.”
So beautiful!

The new movies with the title “Cheaper by the Dozen” are nothing at all like the books, and are perfectly awful. However the old 1950 movies of both “Cheaper by the Dozen” and “Belles on Their Toes” are pretty close to the original books, and very enjoyable.
