Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestseller

When you babysit a grandma, if you're lucky . . . it's a sleepover at her house! And with the useful tips found in this book, you're guaranteed to become an expert grandma-sitter in no time. (Be sure to check out the sections on: How to keep a grandma busy; Things to do at the park; Possible places to sleep, and what to do once you're both snugly tucked in for the night.) From the author-illustrator team behind the bestselling How to Babysit a Grandpa comes a funny and heartwarming celebration of grandmas and grandchildren.

Review:

"Reagan and Wildish follow their bestselling How to Babysit a Grandpa with another sly how-to that guides readers through the finer points of babysitting one's grandparent. The narrator offers suggestion after suggestion for how to make a sleepover at grandma's go off without a hitch, from visiting the park to having singalongs, reading, and watching for the first star at night. Wildish's cheery digital illustrations smooth over any potential moments of anxiety (such as when 'grandma' might be 'missing your mom and dad' at night) with lots of soft smiles and evidence of the close bond between this grandmother and granddaughter. Ages 5 — 8. Author's agent: Jamie Weiss Chilton, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Illustrator's agent: Vicki Willden-Lebrecht, the Bright Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

As every child knows, grandparents are special. Why? Because they love their grandchildren in their own unique way. Although the boy and girl in this story often make mistakes, their grandparents never lose patience, but help their grandchildren and cheer when they get things right.

Lyrical, soothing words are paired with warm and humorous pictures in this tribute to the unconditional love every grandparent and grandchild share.
