Mom and Dad are going to the movies, so they call the babysitter. But the kids don’t realize she’s from another planet. After a little while, they realize she can do cool things, and soon the kids adore her. So when their parents go out the next time, they’re no longer content with a human babysitter. They make a quick call to the babysitter from another planet, and she has a new surprise for them.
This cute tale lets kids imagine the possibilities of interaction with an alien being. It would also be a great story for bedtime, since many of the activities the kids engage in are nighttime routines. The Babysitter From Another Planet is a fun read.
