Six year old Isabella usually is the one who has a babysitter. But when her enormous puppy named Baxter creates a mess and prevents her mom from working, Isabella's mom asks her to babysit him. And Isabella knows exactly what to do! Or does she? First, Isabella gets Baxter dressed...TWICE! Next they have a snack, but not without a CRASH and a BANG. And that’s just the beginning. Join Isabella in her very first picture book filled with lots of humor and adventure as she tries to keep Baxter from making a bigger mess. (Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree and Mom's Choice Award).
Isabella is excited to babysit (dog-sit), when her mother leaves her in charge of their dog, Baxter. Baxter is an adorable pooch, full of energy, and proves to be a handful for Isabella. Isabella and Baxter entertain themselves and leave evidence of their fun around the house. All ends well, when Isabella's mom returns, and finds her daughter acting responsibly by cleaning up the mess. Simple, colorful illustrations clearly define the scenes that young readers will understand. This would make a fun story to read aloud, or for beginning readers to master on their own.
Isabella is a little girl who always is the one who needs a babysitter, until one day when mom needed help. She was given the big responsibility of babysitting her dog Baxter. Baxter is a handful. Isabella seems to have an awesome babysitter that she learned from because all of the activities she did with Baxter were right on par with what her babysitter would do with her. The pictures are colorful and fun. Perfect for ages 4-7. The great thing about this book is that it shows kids what a huge responsibility it is to care for someone or something else. Great Story!
a cute story
The story draws to you from the start with a great bright cover and continues drawing you in with the illustrations. In this story Isabella becomes the babysitter. Her mother asked her to watch Baxter the family dog! Although Isabella doesn't realize that her mother is asking her to do this to keep her busy Isabella feels like a grown up. She goes about taking care of Baxter the way she would take care of herself. Dressing, snacking, playing, bathing and even cleaning up. I really enjoyed the part where she went to the kitchen to get her favorite snack fish crackers and she couldn't quite reach them, knocking them on over and some spilling on the floor brought a giggle from me, knowing that Baxter like any dog wouldn't be able to resist. At the end of the story when "mom" was ready to take Baxter for his walk, she discovered Isabella and Baxter cleaning up and to me this part teaches a lesson about responsibility and cleaning up after yourself. Job well done and I can see many kids loving the playfulness of this book.
