Best Babysitter

Published March 27, 2012 by Mrs. Malo

The next book on our “Getting Ready for Kindergarten” list was Froggy’s Best Babysitter by Jonathan London and illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz.  This would be a great book for teaching concepts of print, styles of text or even onomatopeia but we decided to continue making connections.  This worked very well for us because a favourite movie of ours lately has been Mary Poppins.  Last time we watched it I made sure to point out the part at the beginning when Michael and Jane are reading their father their own advertisement for their new nanny.  After reading the book today I challenged my children to come up with their own qualification for their “Best Babysitter”.  We decided to share their ideas in a movie.
