["Cheaper by the Dozen"] is a gay and affectionate tribute to Frank B. Gilbreth, a latter-day [Clarence] Day….

One hilarious chapter follows another—mass instruction in the touch system of typing, wholesale removal of tonsils, family picnics that were something between an army encampment and a chautauqua.

"Cheaper by the Dozen" is such an entertaining account of the growing Gilbreths that you wish it could have been written before [Frank B. Gilbreth's death in] 1924. The father of the Dozen would have enjoyed it.
