|Review Quote*||Publishers Weekly, January 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... Wildish's cheery digital illustrations smooth over any potential moments of anxiety with lots of soft smiles and evidence of the close bond between this grandmother and granddaughter."
School Library Journal, February 2014:
"Any grown-up who has calmly been the object of a child's flights of fancy will chuckle at the scenarios, as Grandma, never mugging or rolling her eyes, participates fully and patiently in all of her granddaughter's ideas...The charm of its premise and the clear bond between the generations will have kids and grandparents giggling together."
Kirkus Reviews, April 1, 2014:
"Reagan and Wildish create a humorous follow-up how-to tale in this companion to How to Babysit a Grandpa (2012)...This silly take on role reversal will have preschoolers and early-elementary children plotting their own babysitting jobs."
