The Lovereading4Kids comment

Filled with humour, energy, and warmth, this is a great gift to or from a grandparent, and perfect for reading when Grandad comes to visit! Illustrated by the winner of the Red House Children's Book Award 2013, it is a hilarious and accessible picture book about a child spending time with his grandad complete with wonderfully over-the-top illustrations, but very much in keeping with the jaunty text, from Lee Wildish.

Synopsis

How to Babysit a Grandad by Jean Reagan

A New York Times bestselling title, illustrated by the winner of the Red House Children's Book Award 2013. When your grandad rings the doorbell, it's babysitting time! The perfect Father's day gift! Written in a how-to style, the narrator gives important tips for 'babysitting' a grandad, including what to eat for snack (anything dipped in ketchup, ice cream topped with cookies, cookies topped with ice cream), what to do on a walk (find lizards and dandelion puffs, be on the lookout for puddles and sprinklers), and how to play with a grandad (build a pirate cave, put on a scary play).
