Isabella babysits Baxter
by Melissa Perry Moraja
Six year old Isabella usually is the one who has a babysitter. But when her enormous puppy named Baxter creates a mess and prevents her mom from working, Isabella’s mom asks her to babysit him. And Isabella knows exactly how to do it! Or does she?
First, Isabella gets Baxter dressed…TWICE! Next they have a snack, but not without a CRASH and a BANG. And that s just the beginning. Join Isabella in her very first picture book filled with lots of humor and adventure as she tries to keep Baxter from making a bigger mess.
Isabella is a typical six year old little girl. She wants some responsibility. After all, little six year old girls think that they are much older than they are…at least I did at six! I remember being asked to “mentor” the new girl by my first grade teacher. That little girl became one of my best friends through grade school. Being asked to help out by my teacher made me feel very grown up. And Isabella is given a big responsibility by her mom. She needs to babysit Baxter while mom is in her art room working.
Isabella and Baxter have a very fun day, though they tend to make some very big messes. Being the responsible girl she is, Isabella makes sure the messes and Baxter are cleaned up.
Isabella babysits Baxter is an adorable book that your children will love. The illustrations are beautiful and the simple text makes this a great first reader or a read aloud. I definitely recommend this book!
