Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Part of the "American Girl Library," this attractive, fun to use guide provides helpful tips for most aspects of the babysitting experience. This spiral-bound book includes chapters about mealtimes, games, squabbling, frightened kids, misbehaving kids, changing diapers, first aid and bedtime. A useful section at the end offers Super Sitter Stuff, which includes: sample business cards, family profile cards and emergency cards. Sometimes amusing, color illustrations and suggestions from real-life young babysitters, add to the book's appeal. As a mother of four, I found this guide thorough and practical. It could also be useful for boy babysitters, if they do not object to the fact that it's addressed to girls only.
