How to Babysit a Grandpa is an indispensable picture book guide for preschoolers tasked with babysitting an elder relative. It is hilarious and memorable, thanks to author Jean Reagan's helpful lists and Lee Wildish's playful illustrations. The preschool star is rendered with energetic curiosity to spare, and Grandpa with obliging love for him.

Children will learn what snacks to feed a Grandpa (ice cream on cookies and cookies on ice cream), how to prepare Grandpa for a walk (when it's sunny, put sunscreen on his head), and what pictures to draw for him (pirate-shark battles). They'll also learn that "Good babysitters can't leave messes," a message that parents might appreciate when they return from their outing to a clean home.
