The essential home entertainment guide for kids and grandparents!

Sarah doesn't want her grandparents to get bored during their visit, so she and her brother and sister make sure they are always entertained with fun games, creative crafts, delicious food, and lots more!

This unique storybook contains -- you guessed it! -- 38 different fun-filled activities for children and adults to share. When the characters in the story do something really fun that you'd like to try, simple step-by-step instructions and recipes are right there, and each requires only easy-to-find, around-the-house objects.

You can approach this book any way you want. You can sit down and read it straight through as a story -- if you can resist the urge to jump up in the middle and make a delicious cucumber shark or maple syrup magic potion, that is! You can also read the book a chapter at a time, trying each activity as you go along. Or you can read the whole book and do all the activities in two days, just like Sarah and her grandparents.

Some of the easy, creative ways Sarah entertains her grandparents are:

  • Presto Puppets
  • Eat-Your-Words Pancakes
  • Monster Spray
  • Belly-Button Soup
  • Grandpa's Samurai Hat

A cookbook, craft book, and game book all wrapped up in an amusing story!

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. This lively picture book is both a family story and a craft and games book. As Sarah and her siblings entertain their grandparents for the weekend, she relates all the fun they have together, including cooking, playing cards, and going for a walk. Sidebars give instructions for all the card games they play and art projects they make, as well as recipes for all the fun and yummy treats they eat. The projects are practical and easy, covering a range of age-appropriate activities, from tearing old cards in half for a matching game to folding origami hats. The line-and-watercolor pictures are as relaxed and cheerful as the activities. Both the crafts and the story show family time with humor and affection. Kathy Broderick
