My Never Ending List

I read almost every genre & I enjoy venturing into unfamiliar territory. As a library volunteer, I'm constantly bringing home novels. Being a substitute teacher, I read lots of YA & children's books.  

How To Babysit a Grandpa

How to Babysit a Grandpa - Jean Reagan

It’s a sweet story with a young boy babysitting his grandpa, or so he thinks as his parents go out one evening. His grandpa and he have a great time together playing and he realizes that his grandpa is older so he is gentle with him. Before long, the two of them are building caves together and fighting off sharks. I had mixed feelings about the nap section, as grandpa fell asleep and the boy was wide awake (it was cute how the author wrote it up but safety wise, I wasn’t sure this was the best thing as the boy was wide awake and grandpa was napping).You could tell that grandpa and the boy had a loving, caring relationship as you read the text and looked at the illustrations. The use of a variety of text fonts was excellent and I enjoyed their afternoon together. I loved the illustrations as they were sharp, bold and colorful and they helped to tell the story.
