Today I am reviewing Children’s picture book, Isabel babysits Baxter written by Melissa Perry Moraja. Let’s get to know the author a bit more:
Melissa Perry Moraja, Award-Winning Author and Founder of Melissa Productions, Inc., is an entrepreneurial mom, a multifaceted business woman, a creative producer, and an author and illustrator of numerous modern-fantasy children’s books and self-help books. And that’s just the beginning!
Melissa also has published articles, appeared on television, been interviewed on radio, has spoken in front of hundreds of people, and held workshops at local schools, discussing creative learning, publishing and parenting. Her desire to make a difference in her four young children’s lives inspired her to leave her six-salary career at IBM in 2007 to become a full-time mom, children’s author, speaker, and consultant. Melissa spends her personal time coaching soccer and softball, painting, and coming up with fun art projects for her kids.
Six year old Isabella usually is the one who has a babysitter. But when her enormous puppy named Baxter creates a mess and prevents her mom from working, Isabella’s mom asks her to babysit him. And Isabella knows exactly what to do! Or does she? First, Isabella gets Baxter dressed…TWICE! Next they have a snack, but not without a CRASH and a BANG. And that’s just the beginning. Join Isabella in her very first picture book filled with lots of humor and adventure as she tries to keep Baxter from making a bigger mess.
This book is just so adorable. It has really nice illustrations. Isabella is excited at given the chance to babysit her puppy, Baxter, who is extremely playful. Then they go ahead and do fun activities together. Baxter is so naughty and there are some hilarious situations. Here is a sneak peek :
It’s really cute and a great read. Young readers would find the illustrations really attractive & interesting.
I give this book 4 out of 5 which by Goodreads means I ‘really liked it’!
