A New York Times bestselling picture book about a child spending time with his grandpa. Written in a how-to style, the narrator gives important tips for "babysitting" a grandpa, including what to eat for snack (anything dipped in ketchup, ice cream topped with cookies, cookies topped with ice cream) what to do on a walk (find lizards and dandelion puffs, be on the lookout for puddles and sprinklers), and how to play with a grandpa (build a pirate cave, put on a scary play).

Filled with humor, energy, and warmth, this is a great gift for or from a grandparent, and perfect for lap reading when Grandpa comes to visit!

From the Hardcover edition.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jan 13, 2014 – Reagan and Wildish follow their bestselling How to Babysit a Grandpa with another sly how-to that guides readers through the finer points of babysitting one’s grandparent. The narrator offers suggestion after suggestion for how to make a sleepover at grandma’s go off without a hitch, from visiting the park to having singalongs, reading, and watching for the first star at night. Wildish’s cheery digital illustrations smooth over any potential moments of anxiety (such as when “grandma” might be “missing your mom and dad” at night) with lots of soft smiles and evidence of the close bond between this grandmother and granddaughter. Ages 5–8. Author’s agent: Jamie Weiss Chilton, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Illustrator’s agent: Vicki Willden-Lebrecht, the Bright Agency.
