Praise

PRAISE FOR Spic-and-Span:

“This engaging picture-book biography details the many accomplishments of Lillian Gilbreth … Kulling deftly describes early twentieth-century social, physical, and technical conditions that presented challenges to productivity in both public and private settings, and she explains how Gilbreth’s innovations improved conditions, creating context so that young readers can appreciate the extent of her contributions. Parkins’ rich, cartoon-like illustrations provide clear period detail, and his characters’ faces portray an extensive range of emotions, adding interest and emphasizing Gilbreth’s primary commitment to her family.” – Booklist

“In Spic-and-Span, Monica Kulling tells Gilbreth’s life story with warmth and clarity, and David Parkins’ illustrations underscore the wit and humanity of this picture book biograpy.” – The Boston Globe

“Perfect for National Women’s History Month, this fascinating biography reveals the real woman behind the family hijinks in the movie Cheaper by the Dozen…. We owe to Lillian many of today’s kitchen inventions and comforts.” – Washington Parent
