Overview

With the help of Angus, the lovable Answer Dog, best-selling author Heidi Murkoff extends a hand to parents and children as they tackle life's first experiences together.
Whether you're heading out for a night of romance, an afternoon of recreation, or a day of work, there will be plenty of times when you'll need to (or want to) leave home without children. Enter - the babysitter. What To Expect When the Babysitter Comes will help you answer your child's questions about babysitters - what they're for, what they're like, what they do - as well as explain how the day or night will be different (and the same) without Mommy and Daddy.
Have fun!
Heidi and Angus

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Angus, a furry, friendly, cartoon dog, answers questions that young children and their parents have about baby-sitters. Questions such as "What's a babysitter?" "Why can't I just go with Mommy and Daddy?" and "What will I do when Mommy and Daddy are gone?" are each answered in their own cheerful two-page spreads. Readers can follow Angus's paw prints for helpful suggestions such as having the child make a list of fun things to do and favorite foods. Laura Rader and Heidi Murkoff have teamed up on several books including this recent addition in the "What to Expect" series. Parents looking to prepare their child for a sitter will find this book helpful in allaying concerns and useful in creating an atmosphere of happy anticipation for the babysitter's arrival. 2000, HarperCollins, Ages 2 to 5, $7.99.
