Summary

Diverse issues and problems affect our young people today, and they probably don't yet know how to effectively deal with these problems. These eight new titles for reluctant readers cover a broad range of issues that teens face every day.

Baby-sitting is a great way for teens to earn extra money, but many responsibilities and challenges are involved. Weintraub offers advice to teens on all aspects of baby-sitting, including child care, staying safe, handling emergencies, negotiating fees, and networking for new clients.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-A brief yet solid introduction to many facets of baby-sitting, from responsibility, preparation, and precaution, to safety (indoors and out), authority, and employment opportunities. An opening situational paragraph introduces an idea that is then explained in the chapter. Occasional black-and-white and color photos support the text. While the author touches on many of the same issues, this volume is less detailed than Harriet Brown's The Babysitter's Handbook (Pleasant Company, 1999) and Debra Zakarin's The Ultimate Babysitter's Handbook (Price Stern Sloan, 1997). Weintraub doesn't offer the same kind of information in terms of checklists and care plans found in those titles, but she does include boys as baby-sitters, which Brown's volume does not.-Elizabeth Maggio, Palos Verdes Library District, Rolling Hills Estates, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
