Things I learned from this book... sprinkles go well on toast, swim fins are proper shoe attire and my dog isn't the only dog who thinks someone laying down means she can lay on their back.

A grandmother and a granddaughter are the characters of this story. Simple but funny tale about activities the characters do together; interesting change of font to tell the story. Simple illustrations but they explain to really well what the characters do.

What do Grandma's like to do? Anything fun! Sing, dress up like twins, bake and play Shoe Shop. Best of all, cuddle up with a good book to be read over and over again.

This is the companion book to How to Babysit Grandpa which I liked slightly better. Perhaps because little boys are dear to my heart and I didn't feel the little girl's personality come through as well as the little boy's in the first book. Grandpa was also more expressive than Grandma.

In this book, Mom and Dad are leaving over night and the little girl is coming for a sleepover. She believes she is babysitting Grandma. She talks about the best ways to babysit Grandma including lining up all of her shoes to play shoe shop and playing shadow puppets before going to sleep.

I love how Grandma goes along with everything no matter how silly, like dressing up as pop stars to sing and playing with her food.

This book is cute. The illustrations are slightly cleaner and brighter than the first book. It is from the child's perspective. Of course she isn't being babysat by Grandma. It's the other way around. The two gals have great fun together.

This book is advertized for grades k-2 which is perfect. What a wonderful gift this would make for a Grandma in your life.
