Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—This useful, up-to-date handbook offers plenty of practical advice with a wise emphasis on safety, which makes it a good choice for new sitters as well as those with experience. Chassé starts with information on starting a business, including references, advertising, and interviewing. Child development is a main focus; suggested activities and tips on interaction with children at different developmental stages will be appreciated by sitters and parents alike. Sensitive topics, such as discipline, special needs, and playing with make-believe guns, are treated appropriately. A conversational tone and pleasing layout will draw readers in, and the book's down-to-earth advice will prove indispensable. Occasional two-color cartoons feature diverse children and sitters.—Amanda Moss Struckmeyer, Middleton Public Library, WI
