Way-cool ideas to keep babysitters happy!

Leo and his younger sister, Daisy, are left with a new babysitter for the whole day, and their mom is relying on them to ensure that Halley has a great time. That's quite a task. But Leo and Daisy are up to the challenge!

Over the course of the day, Leo, Daisy, and Halley make all kinds of magic. They turn an ordinary piece of bread into a colorful butterfly sandwich; make an animated movie from a pile of paper; and transform mashed potato into an erupting volcano!

As the characters in the story perform an activity, simple step-by-step instructions appear alongside. Each requires only easy-to-find, around-the-house objects and little cleanup! Funky, bright-colored illustrations embellish the humor and allow the reader to follow different stages of each activity.

An amusing, original story with a trio of well-defined, quirky characters sets the scene for 38 easy, creative, no-mess, home activities.
