Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank Gilbreth, Jr.

What do you get when you put twelve lively kids together with a father -- a famous efficiency expert -- who believes families can run like factories, and a mother who is his partner in everything except discipline? You get a hilarious tale of growing up that has made generations of kids and adults alike laugh along with the Gilbreths in "Cheaper by the Dozen." Translated into more than fifty-three languages and made into a classic film starring Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy, "Cheaper by the Dozen" is a delightfully enduring story of family life at the turn of the 20th century.

This is not the remade TV version, but the original.  Cheaper by the Dozen is recommended reading in Sonlight Curriculum, and is highly recommended by Steve Demme of Math U See.

Twelve times the trouble with a dozen kids and one strong papa who keeps his kids on a work plan with charts, plans, sign outs, and a family council. This hilarious book tells just how much trouble twelve kids can get into. I really enjoy this book and recommend it. I think Mom did some editing on the fly as she read aloud -so your mom might want to also! Heidi - age 10
