Growing Up Just Got Easier ... With the help of Angus, the lovable Answer Dog, best-selling author Heidi Murkoff extends a hand to parents and children as they tackle life's first experiences together. Whether you're heading out for a night of romance, an afternoon of recreation, or a day of work, there will be plenty of times when you'll need to (or want to) leave home without children. Enter - the babysitter. What To Expect When the Babysitter Comes will help you answer your child's questions about babysitters - what they're for, what they're like, what they do - as well as explain how the day or night will be different (and the same) without Mommy and Daddy. Have fun! Heidi and Angus

Review:

Sooner or later, Mommy and Daddy will need to go someplace on their own. But how should a baby sitter--as a concept and a real person--be introduced? Ask Angus the Answer Dog. This cheerful Yorkie anticipates every question a child might have about what happens when a baby sitter comes over and answers with upbeat honesty. Each two-page spread asks a question: "Why do I have to have a baby sitter?" "Why can't I just go with Mommy and Daddy?" "What if I get hungry when the baby sitter comes?" "Do baby sitters have children like me?" and more. Many of Angus's responses include a suggestion to make a list before the sitter arrives: about favorite foods, activities, and bedtime routines. A paw print in each section indicates a little game or idea to help "baby sittees" get used to the idea of a baby sitter.

Heidi Murkoff, coauthor of the bestselling pregnancy book, What to Expect When You're Expecting, writes lucidly and honestly in all the books in the invaluable, appealing What to Expect series for young children, including What to Expect When Mommy's Having a Baby and What to Expect When You Go to the Doctor. Laura Rader's fun, cartoonish illustrations make baby sitters look like loads of fun! With the help of Angus and this appealing read-aloud book, your child will soon be waving you off with a mere "See you later, alligator!" (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter
