Book Review: Babysitting Sugarpaw by Children's author VS Grenier

Babysitting SugarPaw

Author: VS Grenier

Illustrator: Kevin Scott Collier

ISBN: 978-1-935268-06-2

Halo Publishing 2009

This is a fun story about the antics of a bear while he has a babysitter. Sugarpaw changes the rule chart and makes a mess in the bath. He spills paints and does everything he can to make the babysitter not like him.

In the end he feels bad about how he has acted. The babysitter cleans up the messes and tucks Sugarpaw into bed. In the end the antics are between the two of them and Mama and Papa bear never know how silly Sugarpaw acted. The babysitter was the best after all.

Children will love this story because they will relate to Sugarpaw. Most little one's don't really like it when parents leave and sometimes they do act out with the babysitter. The illustrations are cute and enhance the story helping to engage the reader throughout the book.

This is a book that will be enjoyed over and over. Read what others have said:

BABYSITTING SUGARPAW Book Blurbs for back of book:

“Children will love to read about the mischievous antics of Sugarpaw who doesn't want to be babysat. Will Bonnie, a first-time babysitter, be able to keep Sugarpaw out of mischief until his parents return? Bonnie Whiskers finds she is up to the task, teaching Sugarpaw about patience along the way. Sweet illustrations by Kevin Scott Collier perfectly capture Bonnie's babysitting challenges.”
