Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-- A well-written and informative guide for beginning or would-be babysitters. The emphasis is on safety, both that of the charges and of the sitter, but the book also includes valuable advice on how to get jobs, decide on fees, interact with the children and their parents, and involve the sitter's parents in the work arrangements. The humorous cartoon illustrations serve to reinforce the points of the text and are well integrated into the design of the book. This above-average book covers a wide variety of relevant topics in an upbeat, readable style. Most public and school libraries will want to add it to their collections. --Trish Ebbatson, Delaware County District Library, OH
