  Reviews of Nonfiction Books
  Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank and Ernestine Gilbreth

Review by: Melissa Z.
Pennsylvania, Grade 7

One interesting thing about the book was that it was just story after story after story, instead of being a boring book of facts on the Gilbreths' life. This particular presentation really stuck out to me; it made the book more entertaining and enjoyable than it already was.

I liked the book because the biography wasn't tedious, or annoying to finish, but on the other hand, it was just pure adventure, wild to the last ride. Also, this book made me think of how much fun it'd be to be in a family of a dozen children. The one part I didn't like about the novel was that sometimes there'd be vocabulary that I could not define, and I'd be so sucked into the craziness that I couldn't look the words up. All in all, I thought that the eventful lives of the Gilbreths were magnificent, and that the biography was very well-written.
