  • I use this novel with my 6th grade students and they love it. I also really enjoy this novel, but there aren't a lot of resources that make it 'kid-friendly.' This resource did just that. The information was presented in a way that was attractive and engaging while also staying true to the novel itself.

About the Novel:
A classic story of a family of twelve children and their adventures while growing up together. Frank and Lillian Gilbreth were renowned efficiency experts, who often practiced their many different theories and experiments on their large family. Written with wit and humor, the book documents a multitude of humorous and touching vignettes–some hilarious and others nostalgic and heart-warming. Family adventures include the family car, a vintage Pierce-Arrow, which is used by the parents for Sunday drives and causes the children no end of embarrassment. As well as a trip out west to visit Mother’s straight-laced family. It is a story in which most families will readily identify, and keep the reader turning the pages to the very end.
