This book i wonderful and helpful. I was babysitting for my brother and his friend one time and i used one of the ideas in the book for lunch that said play resturante, you be the watriess. It really worked!!!! The kids were great the whole time and love the idea. When i aksed them if they wanted me to do it again they both enthuiasticly said yes!!! This book even comes with a client address book, the book, business cards, a notepad telling what we ate, what we watched, and what time we went to bed, it also comes with a notepad for the adults to leave their cell phone numbers pagers ect, but my faviorite thing it came with were the srickers they had stickers for going to bed on timme, eating all your food, being a helper, being a sweetheart, and being an all-around good kid. I used the srickers by getting a piece of papper taping it up on the wall and every single time you get all the stickers you get a surprise. A surprise could be candy, getting your nails painted, or a little toy from the dollar tree. This is a fantastic book and i highly recomened it for any one who does or wants to babysitt.

Me and my friends Talia and Nathelie started a babysitting club after Talia finished taking a safe sitter course which taught her the basic of babysitting. Well she has a personal book like the american girl book. Me and Nathelie don't have one so we are planning to buy this book because it is even better then hers. Even though me and Nathelie are still going to get certified for the safty of the children we sit for. I want to shout out to the kids we sit for: Remy, Shyanne, Alexis, Brett Jr.,and Tiara.

I have not read the book yet, but from the information the other reviewers give of what they learned,sounds like they learned a lot. It sounds like they have every thing about baby sitting down packed. I think i need to learn that stuff too, because I have two younger cousins and some times I have to watch them so this book is the right for me.

This book was really great. I have 3 siblings and it is very helpful when I am watching them and other kids. It has great game ideas for kids of any age, how to handle crying kids, healthy but tastey meals, tips on how to stop fighting siblings, what to do with scared kids, what to do when the kid gets hurt, and other helpful hints. I would reccomend it to all babysitters-starters or pros, it is just so good. I think that everyone should buy, or at least read this book.

If your a beginer or a pro this book is great as a referance for child care! It has everything form entertaining the kids to what to when there's an emergancy. This gives step-by-step instructions on things you need to know like changing a diaper. It also gives ideas, questions, answers, and opinions from real baby-sitters. Always keep this book as a handy referance when you are baby-sitting!
