Today’s the big day! The Super Sitter’s Playbook is out! It’s a guide for girls on how to entertain younger girls and boys. That’s right! I made sure to include ideas that all little kids would like. The book is filled with crafts, recipes, and games that will get girls through any babysitting job. That’s why we called it a “playbook.” It’s a companion book to the Smart Girl’s Guide to Babysitting. Turn to that book for all the important information on how to become a babysitter then turn to this book for an in-depth focus on all the fun.
This book was a bit unique because I had to create activities that were both boy-friendly and appropriate for little kids. What’s the difference between a kid and a little kid? Well, I’m used to writing for 8 to 12 year olds. They are kids or “tweens.” But “little” covers that 3 to 5 or 5 to 7 range. Every kid has extremely different abilities when it comes to crafts — and attention spans — so it’s always a challenge to find those perfect ideas.
Luckily, I did a lot of babysitting in my day so this book came naturally to me just as the slumber party book did. (Apparently I’ve been building my resume since age 10.) In the book, I gave a shout-out to my sister and the two neighbor girls I used to babysit who are all 20+ now. They’re mentioned in the special thanks in the credits if you want to take a peek.
