DescriptionThe classic sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen
After Dad died, life at the Gilbreth house became more challenging to say the least. But with twelve kids, a resourceful mother, and an irrepressible blend of humor and sentiment, America’s favorite extra-large family will find a way to keep it all together. The Gilbreths happily rise to every occasion: Mother works to keep the family business running without Dad, and the kids tackle the adventures of growing up en masse.
With the clan struggling to make ends meet and stay together, everyone has to pitch in. Their attempts to pinch pennies frequently result in comical chaos, and everyday life at the Gilbreths’ is full of good cheer, even when confronted by tragedy. From the trials of the first year without Dad to the daily crises of a family with a double-digit headcount, the stories of Belles on Their Toes are wholesome, heartwarming, and always hilarious.
