No Babysitters Allowed

By Stewart, Amber & Rankin, Laura

Publishers Summary:
Hopscotch is a very brave bunny—except when his parents go out and Mrs. Honeybunch comes to stay. She wants to play, but Hopscotch would much rather be alone in his special NO BABYSITTERS ALLOWED fort . . . that is, until he hears Mrs. Honeybunch reading his books all wrong. But explaining the right way to tell the stories would mean leaving his fort, and Hopscotch isn’t sure he’s brave enough for that. This sweetly funny story about separation anxiety will provide ample reassurance to young children (and their worried parents) facing babysitter night.
