Review Publishers Weekly , January 13, 2014:"Reagan and Wildish follow their bestselling How to Babysit a Grandpa with another sly how-to that guides readers through the finer points of babysitting one's grandparent... Wildish's cheery digital illustrations smooth over any potential moments of anxiety with lots of soft smiles and evidence of the close bond between this grandmother and granddaughter." School Library Journal , February 2014:"Any grown-up who has calmly been the object of a child’s flights of fancy will chuckle at the scenarios, as Grandma, never mugging or rolling her eyes, participates fully and patiently in all of her granddaughter’s ideas...The charm of its premise and the clear bond between the generations will have kids and grandparents giggling together." Kirkus Reviews , April 1, 2014:"Reagan and Wildish create a humorous follow-up how-to tale in this companion to How to Babysit a Grandpa (2012)...This silly take on role reversal will have preschoolers and early-elementary children plotting their own babysitting jobs." From Booklist In this companion to How to Babysit a Grandpa (2012), Reagan offers a fun, relatable story about the qualities of being a good babysitter, told from the perspective of a little girl who is spending quality time with her grandmother. From the illustrations, which resemble Polaroid snapshots of their visit together, to the many checklists that the little girl jots down, such as “How to Keep Grandma Busy” and “How to Say Good-Bye to Grandma,” the story celebrates family connections—and successful babysitting experiences. 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.
