Farmer Joe Baby-sits
Written by: Nancy Wilcox Richards

This is another hilarious easy reader for kids 5 and up about how Farmer Joe baby-sits Jennifer.
His wife leaves him with a whole bunch of ground rules on everything that Farmer Joe has to do with Jennifer. But there is a problem: farmer Joe never baby-sat in his whole life.
Jennifer’s mother bought a whole bunch of toys, and a whole list of instructions for farmer Joe. He had to play games with Jennifer, give her a snack, take her outside, and make sure that she took a nap in the afternoon. In order for Jennifer to fall asleep, however, she had to be given a special blanket.
Could Farmer Joe follow all of these instructions? How does his day go?
This story will keep kids reading it over and over. It could make a great bedtime book.
