Help, I Don't Want a Babysittter! - a bookwrap

Unwrapping some fun quote for you...

Unwrapping todays book...

Wanna see inside?

Ollie is upset.  His cuddle buddy Stubbs is upset too.  Why?  His mom and dad are taking a night off to go to a movie and guess what he's getting?  Yep, his first babysitter.  He and his stuffed buddy start to stew and fret and think of all the things that could possibly go wrong.  The what if's pile up and the imaginations go into overdrive.  And then she magically appears at the door, voilΓ‘?  Should he worry? No way.

She is amazing.  She is cool.  She is wonderful, caring and yes, dare he even admit it? ... lots of fun.  She whips them up a Swashbuckler's meal, initiates a game of hide-and-seek and helps them build a cozy fort to snuggle up and read in altogether.  All his fretting was for naught and I am sure he will try to find a way to get his parents to go out more often so he can spend more quality time with his new babysitter best friend.  

The story is engaging and kids will love the illustrations.  Colourful and detailed they tell a story all on their own.  Word bubbles, different styles of fonts, little added attachments, like notes, make the story very interesting and kid-friendly.  I highly recommend this book and it would be a wonderful read for a child who is experiencing a babysitter for the very first time.
