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.) And don't forget to reassure Grandma if she's missing your mom and dad at night...
This hilarious book from author Jean Reagan's best-selling How To... series is sure to delight both grandmas and their grandma-sitting grandchildren! The clever role reversal will help kids feel more confident on sleepover's at Grandma's, and the illustrations depict fun activities and a loving, close bond between the pair. And, for eager young readers, a companion book, How to Read to a Grandma or Grandpa, showcases the joys of reading with grandparents too.
"The how-to format, which Reagan highlights in the narrator’s bubbly handwriting, creates a lively framework, but it’s the bright, energetic mixed-media illustrations that convey the action and create the sense of story and character. Particularly clear in an evening scene as the girl and her grandma observe the stars in the purplish night sky, the mood of kindness, love, and togetherness comes through on every page." — Annie Miller, Booklist
