Monkey and Elephant and the Babysitting Adventure
author: Carole Lexa Schaefer
illustrator: Galia Bernstein
When Monkey’s cousin MeeMee tells Monkey and Elephant she needs someone to watch her three babies for an afternoon, the two friends volunteer. But Monkey and Elephant don’t quite know what to expect. Will babysitting be hard? Will they need some rules? Will they be any good at it? And when some old baddies show up, will the two babysitters know what to do? Beginning readers will recognize the conflicting feelings that come with trying new things even as they delight in the antics of this unlikely pair of friends.
“Babysitting isn’t as easy as it seems. . . . Fans of the earlier titles will delight in Monkey and Elephant’s last escapade.” — School Library Journal
