This book is fascinating with the topic and the reactions. When Nancy is confronted with a new babysitter that is a male, she is quite disturbed at first because she has to change her plans. The theme of this book encourages coping with unplanned events and finding the positive in new experiences. As always, the vocabulary in the book encourages a love for words! ( )

This is a interesting book about Nancy discovering that her babysitter is a boy. She changes her plans of playing with dolls to adapt to her "new reality". Nice to introduce kids to a new baby sitter. I like the illustrations! It is a nice book to use with first and second graders to introduce lots of "juicy" words (teaching vocabulary).

Nancy is excited that her new babysitter Alex is coming over and plans an agenda including playing with dolls and looking at fashion magazines. But to her consternation, Alex turns out to be a boy! Nevertheless, Nancy has fun with Alex as they juggle, hula hoop, and drink tea. I admire this book for introducing a male babysitter as a perfectly acceptable choice but wish it had gone further by Nancy deciding it was okay to do the things on her original agenda planned for a female babysitter even after she found out that Alex was a boy. The illustrations are charming, and this is a good book for preparing children for a night with a babysitter - male or female. ( )
