This book is adorable! A fun, clever, cute idea to turn the table and let the little one think he is babysitting.

It’s a sweet story with a young boy babysitting his grandpa, or so he thinks as his parents go out one evening. His grandpa and he have a great time together playing and he realizes that his grandpa is older so he is gentle with him. Before long, the two of them are building caves together and fighting off sharks. I had mixed feelings about the nap section, as grandpa fell asleep and the boy was wide awake (it was cute how the author wrote it up but safety wise, I wasn’t sure this was the best thing as the boy was wide awake and grandpa was napping).You could tell that grandpa and the boy had a loving, caring relationship as you read the text and looked at the illustrations. The use of a variety of text fonts was excellent and I enjoyed their afternoon together. I loved the illustrations as they were sharp, bold and colorful and they helped to tell the story. 4.5 stars

It was like the author watched my niece and nephew as they spent time with their grandfather and then wrote a book about it.

My father and my daughter read this book together at least once a week, it has replaced all of their Berenstain Bears or Dr Seuss books as favorite book.
