Just in time for Grandparents Day!
(Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016)
When you babysit a grandma, if you're lucky . . . it's a sleepover at her house! And with the useful tips found in this book, you're guaranteed to become an expert grandma-sitter in no time.
The sweet joke here is that the Grandma in the story is really just playing along, letting her granddaughter think she's the caregiver!
This fun, relatable story is about the qualities of being a good babysitter - told from the perspective of a little girl who is spending quality time with her grandmother. As the girl jots down ideas and checklists for the day, such as "How to Keep Grandma Busy" and "How to Say Good-Bye to Grandma,"Â the story celebrates family connections and the mood of kindness, love, and togetherness comes through on every page. Any grown-up who has calmly been the object of a child's flights of fancy will chuckle at the scenarios, as Grandma, never mugging or rolling her eyes, participates fully and patiently in all of her granddaughter's ideas.
A New York Times bestseller!
