so helpful! A Teen's Review

I recieved this book from my wish list after I decided I wanted to start babysitting. This is probably the book you want if you want to start. I haven't even read through the whole book yet but from already reading just chapters in it, this book has really helped me feel ready and excited to babysit! Sometimes, if something didn't work out that day for babysitting, I'll take a look in this book, and check up on what they suggest for different types of situations. This book covers practically everything you'll need to know, from changing diapers, to babysitting more than one child at once. One chapter I like includes ideas and suggestions for activities for different age groups. The only thing it doesn't include is major emergencies and how you take care of them (besides calling 911). If you want to learn those types of things, then I would reccomend taking a class for babysitting. I have found this book extremely helpful!!!

Best Babysitting Book Ever!!!

This book is so helpful! I say the reveiw "Sugar, Spice, and NOT Everything Nice," and I was dissapointed. I thought "We can not be talking about the same book!" This book is SO helpful. I used it when I first started babysitting and now everyone on my block asks me to babysit. This book shows how to change a baby, what do do in an emergency, what to do if you get scared while babysitting, small easy to make snacks to make, and so much more! Please get this for your child if they are planning to babysit. It even shows what to do if someone is trying to get into the house your babysitting in. GET THIS BOOK! It's so totally rocks! It is a book that kids and parents have to love!

Best Babysiters Guide EVER!

I just got certified as a babysitter and I thought I'd read some more about it! I got this book and it covered more than the class did! I covers everything you need to know! I like how it has game recomendations for different ages! This book rocks!

The Babysitter's Handbook: The Care and Keeping of Kids

This book was very helpful, after reading this book, i took a couple of babysitting classes and passed them easily. I got alot more jobs after reading the book and it really helped me improve on my babysitting.

A Great Book!

This is a really great handbook with a lot of info. There are sections in the book on deciding whether or not you're ready, mealtime, bedtime, when kids get scared, games and activities to play with the kids, changing diapers, when kids say, "But my mom lets me!", and first-aid and safety tips. There are even business and info cards that you can punch out. I recommend this book with a good first-aid book and, of course, a babysitting course!
