9780060598235: Belles on Their Toes

Life is very different now in the rambling  Gilbreth house. When the youngest was two and the oldest  eighteen, Dad died and Mother bravely took over  his business. Now, to keep the family together,  everyone has to pitch in and pinch pennies. The  resourceful clan rises to every crisis with a marvelous  sense of fun -- whether it's battling chicken pox,  giving the boot to an unwelcome boyfriend, or even  meeting the President. And the few distasteful  things they can't overcome -- like castor oil -- they  swallow with good humor and good graces.   Belles On Their Toes is a warm,  wonderful and entertaining sequel to Cheaper By  The Dozen.
