Sugarpaw does not want to be babysat and hopes to get rid of his new sitter, Bonnie Whiskers. Sugarpaw devises a plan to get Bonnie in trouble by changing his rule chart. Instead, Sugarpaw learns a lesson in honesty and friendship. Maybe a sitter isn’t so bad after all……

Babysitting Sugarpaw is a delightful story! The story is centered on Sugarpaw, a young bear cub who is afraid of being left alone with a baby sitter for the first time

Sugarpaw's Mama and Papa are going out for the evening and have asked Bonnie Whiskes to babysit for them. Sugarpaw was not happy about this. His parents explained to the babysitter the rules that were posted in the kitchen as to what Sugarpaw was suppose to do before bedtime.

Even though Sugarpaw did not follow the rules Bonnie Whiskes did a great job keeping up with the mischievous Sugarpaw.

Will Bonnie Whiskes tell his parents about his behavior?

Do you think Sugarpaw was sorry for all the troubl

Babysitting Sugarpaw is a very good book to share with kids when it's time to bring over the babys

What an interesting about babysitters. Babysitters can relate to Bonnie Whiskers as she deals with a very mischievous SugarPaw. SugarPaw, like most children, doesn’t think he needs a babysitter and came up with a plan to tamper with the rules chart Mama Bear left for Bonnie Whiskers.

I think this is a wonderful read for children. It will make them think twice about playing pranks on the babysitter. What a great colorful illustrations by Kevin Scott Collier which bring the story to life. I recomm

I fun book to add to a primary classroom library. SugarPaw does not want a babysitter so he changes the rules chart and spends most of the night misbehaving. By the end of the evening SugarPaw realizes that he really does like Bonnie Whiskers as a babysitter and has not been honest. The surprising twist at the end will pull on your heartstrings.

Babysitting SugarPaw is a wonderful read aloud story for parents to share with their young children--especially if they will be leaving their children with babysitters. The story lends itself to great discussions about good and bad behaviors and the effects those behaviors can have on others.

I received this book through a Goodreads giveaway. My five year-old really enjoyed it and loved the idea of SugarPaw tricking Bonnie Whiskers, the babysitter. I thought it was good that SugarPaw felt remorse for his actions and worried about getting Bonnie Whiskers into trouble. He apologized and told Bonnie that he liked having a babysitter after all. A good way to introduce the concept of a babysitter to young children.
