Fun and light-hearted look at the relationship between a child and granfather. Cute Factor: 10+ ( )
  kimpiddington | Mar 22, 2016 |
In my opinion “How To Babysit A Grandpa” is a great book. This books shows how strong a bond is between a child and a grandpa. The roles are reversed and the child is babysitting the grandpa. The writing in this book is very clear and organized. For example, they give multiple ways of “How to say goodbye to a grandpa: surprise him with the picture. Give him a hug and a kiss, a hug and a kiss, a hug and a kiss.” Also the illustrations go very well with the story. The different activities that the child does with the grandpa each have a picture. Overall, the story shows that the bond between a grandpa and a child is unbreakable. ( )

48 months - Who's babysitting who? Cute story idea. ( )

This modern fantasy book was almost an instruction manual for babysitting your grandpa. There were many things the child suggested you do, like hiding form him when he first arrives, or playing pretend, like pirate ships. All of these adventures should be followed by a nap before the parents return home ( )

A very witty book about a young boy "babysitting" his grandpa; from the perspective of how a child would babysit someone (eating chocolate for breakfast.) Great book when talking about responsibilities, families, etc.
Genre: Realistic Fiction

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375867139, Hardcover)

This is a hilarious and accessible picture book about a child spending time with his grandpa. Written in a how-to style, the narrator gives important tips for "babysitting" a grandpa, including what to eat for snack (anything dipped in ketchup, ice cream topped with cookies, cookies topped with ice cream) what to do on a walk (find lizards and dandelion puffs, be on the lookout for puddles and sprinklers), and how to play with a grandpa (build a pirate cave, put on a scary play).

Filled with humor, energy, and warmth, this is a great gift for or from a grandparent, and perfect for lap reading when Grandpa comes to visit!
