The Early Buzz
Amanda (age 6) and I really enjoyed reading this happy-go-lucky story together. The pictures are bright and cheerful and the story is cute and funny. Amanda liked it so much that she said all of it was her favorite. My favorite part was when the puppy jumped into the bath.
Parents and children with pets will especially enjoy this story. I recommend it for children ages 3 to 8.

“It’s fun, zany, big and colorful – just like a kid’s book should be. Even the cover itself is inviting. with its deep red background and a wide-eyed, paint-spattered Baxter staring at the reader who must wonder about the story behind the scene. The cover is impressive in its artwork, design, hint of a sparkle accent, and the unusual smooth, non-paper feel. Bottom line – “Isabella babysits Baxter” represents Fun with a capital F. ” ~ 5 Star Review, Spudman, Amazon, Top 100 Reviewer
