KIRKUS REVIEW

Participation in parental problems as the author tells of her three boys. From the conscientious, hag-ridden mother of one, to the old-hand attitude when there were two, then further modulations when there were three, Mrs. Teal presents the record with considerable hilarity. Each of the three was a distinct personality. She tells of their school days, their holidays, the attitude of husband, friends and neighbors towards the boys' escapades. Steering away from sentimentality, she produces a gaily turned account of modern parenthood.
