By The Book Kids Review and Giveaway
By The Book Kids is all about making sure whoever is watching your children is prepared for your children. This book ROCKS! It’s a gigantic book filled with pages about your kids. Do you ever feel like, after you’ve dropped your kid[s] off at the babysitter’s house, there was something uber-important that you may have forgotten to tell them? Maybe your kid needs a sippy cup before naptime? Or, in my case when I was little, can’t fall asleep without their blankie? By The Book Kids will take care of all of that! And, not only is it great for a babysitter, but if you have your kids in a daycare all day long, this is amazing for that too.
There are pages for your child’s weekly routine, daily routine, allergies and special needs, school information, extra-curricular activity information, all about what they love and hate, disciplinary notes [AWESOME! Not everyone disciplines their kids the same way], notes about your house [if they come to your house to watch the littles], I could go on for days! Anything you could ever want your babysitter to know is included in this book.
Seeing as how we only have Punk three weekends of the month, we don’t send her off to the babysitters all that much. We typically try to spend as much time with her as we can when we’ve got her. But, every once in awhile we do drop her off at the MIL’s or my mom’s for a few hours, and I know I would feel a lot better about leaving this with them. I know I turned out [mostly] okay, but sometimes I still worry… I got to review an e-copy, which I actually prefer. Nowadays, everyone’s got e-mail, and this way you can e-mail it to anyone who takes care of the littles and still keep your copy at home – no worrying about misplacing the book or leaving it with one sitter and then not having it for the next.
You can purchase this super cool book here. Enter BTBK7757 as the coupon code, and get 25% off the hardbound book!
By The Book Kids has generously offered one of my fabulous readers an e-copy of the book!
