PreSchool-K This somewhat bland portrayal of a frequent childhood experience will have limited appeal to young children. A 5-year-old boy (member of a white, nuclear family) narrates the events during an evening with his 15-year-old babysitter, Martha. The text and watercolor illustrations describe the experience from the sitter's arrival through the activities of the evening including mealtime, bedtime and the parents' return. Cooperation and caring characterize the relationship between Martha and her charge for the evening. One inconsistency that youngsters will note is that the narrator says, "Then Martha and I watch TV until it is time for me to go to bed," followed by a picture of them both sitting in a chair while "Martha reads my favorite book to me." Other pictures, though, could possibly be used to help develop oral vocabulary and sequencing skills. Janie Schomberg, Edgerton Elementary School, Maplewood, Minn.
