REVIEW by Tash Cerny
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ages: 5 – 8 years
My kids love visiting Grandma! Not only is it a fun break from the ordinary, Grandma’s always got time, love and cookies…lots and lots of cookies.
Unfortunately for our family, Grandma doesn’t live close by, so trips to Grandma’s house are always an “event.” I worried for a long time that my kids wouldn’t have the same close, loving relationship with their grandmother that I had with mine.
Despite the always-full cookie jar, distance does define a relationship.
So, what was I going to do if I couldn’t move my family closer together? I started planning “just kids” trips so that Grandma could have a little one-on-one time with her grandchildren. It was a big hit, and it’s now a yearly tradition.
My kids’ favorite part about their annual trip (besides Grandma, of course)?
All the crazy and fun ideas they’ve stolen out of Jean Reagan’s, How to Babysit a Grandma.
A great book for kids to bond over and share with their grandmothers, How to Babysit a Grandma is a delightfully fun “how to” book that offers lots of ideas to keep kids and their grandmothers alike entertained for hours.
So, how do you babysit a grandma?
With a super fun book, of course! At 23 pages, How to Babysit a Grandma is non-stop fun for kids of all ages – from 2 – 92!
Whether you’re buying the book as a gift for the grandma in your life, or as a book to keep on your shelves for those visits from your grandkids, How To Babysit A Grandma is full of playful suggestions that are sure to have grandkids asking, “When can we go to Grandma’s house again?”
With plenty of pictures and a jam-packed story full of fun, Jean Reagan’s story of a granddaughter’s special sleepover visit with her grandma offers plenty of great ideas for bonding time between Grandma and the grandkids.
How To Babysit A Grandma offers a whole new world of playful possibilities, while encouraging the love and growth of family ties that only comes from time spent together.
Teach your children about all the ways in which their time with Grandma can be special, and show the grandma in your life just how much you care with this wonderful addition to every bookshelf.
