REVIEW: This is one of those that I loved before I even read it. The cover, the summary, all of it. And then we get into reading it and not only did my kids and I enjoy it, but my they wanted to read it all over again.

It’s a very lovable and sweet story about babysitting grandma and the many adventures the child takes with her along the way. From sleeping in a tent, to grandma’s big bed. Decorating her with ribbons, bows and stickers. Then to feeding the ducks and enjoying the stars at night.

The part that gave us the most feels, were the goodbye’s. It hits close to home because we are all far away from our loved ones, and my little ones know the feeling a little too well.

“Say I-LOVE-YOU! without making a sound. Give her a big hug and ask, ‘When can I babysit you again?”
I will be getting “How to Babysit a Grandpa” because I know the kids will love it just as much as they did this read.
