Book Review: The Babysitter’s Survival Guide by Jill D. Chasse

This handbook is the ultimate babysitter’s helper, a go-to guide with smart advice on everything from finding clients and snagging the job to entertaining, feeding, bathing, and lulling children to sleep. There are kid-friendly recipes to tempt the picky eater, cool activities for all age ranges, suggestions for handling tears, tantrums, and emergencies, and enough practical information to make even new sitters feel confident about their skills.

With its chapter tabs, make your own business cards, handy pockets, and perforated emergency information cards, this beautiful package is a must-have for all babysitters.

The Babysitter’s Survival Guide by Jill D. Chasse is a great book for tweens who are ready to start babysitting. I gave this book to my ten year old daughter to “review”. She and 2 of her friends had a great time reading through this book. They each prepared a babysitting bag filled with some of the items this book suggested to entertain the children they will babysit. They made up a cute flyer to hand out to neighbors with young children to advertise that they were available to babysit.  I ended up with a ton of peanut butter playdough on my kitchen counter after the experimented with making and playing with it.  My daughter is thrilled that the book is now hers to keep.
 
Included in the book is everything from how to change a diaper to bathing a child and putting them to bed. Information on what to expect from different ages of children to how to deal with problems that may be encounter to safety is included in this how-to book.

This book is a great resource to share with your tween who is excited to start babysitting.
