["He's My Boy"] is a homey little group of anecdotes about the author's four-year-old son Teddy. The stories, more gently amusing than wildly funny, reflect the author's nostalgia as memories of his own boyhood in Providence as one of "The Dozen" are brought back by his son's reactions to some of the milestones of his growing up—haircuts, a plane trip from home in Charleston to Nantucket, a birthday party, kindergarten, a new baby sister. Gilbreth's style is comfortable and easy going and his comments on various aspects of family living, its foibles as well as features, are critical without being cutting.
