More About the Author

I write about the things that interest me, from the neurobiology of forgiveness to early childhood education. You can find my work in the New York Times Magazine, O, and many other publications. My latest book, BRAVE GIRL EATING: A FAMILY'S STRUGGLE WITH ANOREXIA, is part memoir, part science journalism; it recounts our family's efforts to help our oldest daughter recover from anorexia as well as exploring the latest research on eating disorders. I've edited two anthologies (FEED ME! and MR. WRONG), and have written other nonfiction books, including THE GOOD-BYE WINDOW: A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF A DAY-CARE CENTER and THE BABYSITTER'S HANDBOOK. I teach magazine journalism at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in Syracuse, New York. Find me on Twitter (@HarrietBrown) and Facebook.

I'm a 13 year old girl and I bought this kit and thought it was just great! It comes with Business Cards, an Activity Guide, Babysitting Handbook: The Care and Keeping of Kids book, 2 notpads, 3 sticker sheets, a mini Address book, and more.

The Book, 64 pages, has a lot of the following:
-FAQ
-Ways to say, "Hi!" to kidsafter their parents leave,
-Fun meals
-Games and Activities
-How to stop sibling rivalry
-How to comfort scared children
-Wise words for the times kids take control
-Diaper / Changing
-Safety/ First Aid
-Bedtime/ Naptime

For 64 pages, this book is JAM-PACKED with information!

Don't be confused:
*This kit INCLUDES the book - The Babysitter's Handbook: The Care and Keeping for Kids. Do NOT buy it seperatly*

Obviously, this book is for girls, hence the term AMERICAN GIRL.

My daughter is almost 11 and is so looking forward to babysitting. This kit is a great start. It gives her an honest overview of what is expected of a babysitter. It also lets your child know that is a very important job and should not be taken lightly. We ordered this along with the Babysitter's Handbook not realizing that this Kit has the Handbook in it. So now we have a gift for a friend!

Bought this for my 12 year old daughter. She loved it. Takes it with her in sitter bag on her jobs. She also took advice and went to take Red Cross Babysitter course. Wonderful for those girls wanting to start babysitting or wanting to be a mom's helper.

I asked my dad to buy me this book when I started my babysitting business. It was full of useful information and helped me start my business. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about babysitting.

I got one of these books when I first got my babysitting licence, when I was 12. The book included in this kit is chock full of information, and the kit supplies are handy AND cute! My favorite has to be the "Welcome Home!" list. Four years later, the book is looking rather sad, and the kit is all but gone. I ordered a new one, and it arrived in perfect condition. :)
