As a young babysitter you know that grandmas need special care and attention, especially when there are sleepovers involved. You’ve got to keep them busy! First, you need to include all of the not-to-be-missed things to do at the park. Later, you will want to let your grandma choose some of the grandma-friendly crafts. Dinner can be tricky. Look for tips in this book on making the meal appetizing and delicious. Once your grandma is all tuckered out, help her choose the best spot to sleep. Don’t forget to make her feel at home with a super-fun secret bedtime routine!
Adults, Reagan’s delightful book captures the heart of family and encourages intergenerational relationship building. I recommend sharing “How to Babysit a Grandma” and the companion volume, “How to Babysit a Grandpa“, with every young babysitter you know.
