I was given the opportunity to review this delightful children's book titled Babysitting SugarPaw by VS Grenier and illustrated by Kevin Collier because of my membership at the Product Review Place.  The book, targeting children ages 3 to 8, tells the story of SugarPaw and his babysitter.  As many children can relate to having babysitters in this day and age, the story confronts the issue of being left with a babysitter for the first time and choices of right and wrong.  It provides the children an opportunity to see how one should behave while teaching that not everything is how it seems and you should give it a chance.


I thought the story's lesson was good and the illustrations were excellent.  I was surprised at how patient Bonnie Whiskers was throughout all the episodes that SugarPaw put her through. 


VS Grenier is an award winning author and Editor-in-Chief of Stories for Children Magazine.  VS Grenier's experience at the Institute Children's Literature taught her how to hone her writing skills.
