Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
I love this book because it identifies some of the developmental and behavioral characteristics of 6 age-ranges of children in addition to providing sound babysitting advice. Experienced babysitters know that what interests four-year-olds does not necessarily apply to seven-year-olds. Additional chapters wisely discuss What Parents Look for in a Babysitter, Am I Ready to Babysit, How to Start Babysitting, Starting Your First Job, as well as a chapter on safety and games to play with each age group. It is well thought out and organized, although the layout seems more adult-like than young-person oriented. However, it is all one needs to get started in this challenging and rewarding job. There is space at the end of the book to keep a babysitting journal. 2002, Writer's Club Press,

    Good For Beginners

    I felt as if after having taken a babysitting class and lots of experience with babysitting jobs and kids already that most of this information was repetitive:/. I would say that anyone who is just starting out as a babysitter has come to the right place if they are seeking information and some helpful tips(: I wouldn't, however, reccomend this to anyone who has taken classes and is experienced.

    I think I'd give it 3 stars for anyone ... the tips were okay.. but if you are unsure then get the sample because thats kind of what the whole book is like(: lol

    Thanks!

    This is a very good book

    I was looking for a book about babysitting to give my 15-year-old babysitter. I found this book and it works great. I would recommend this book to any parent or babysitter.
