      Great gift idea for the grandparent to be. How To Babysit a Grandpa by Jean Reagan: Cutest book EVER! Grandpa has come to babysit... But who is the real babysitter? The young boy has to keep his grandpa entertained, make sure he takes his nap, feed him a snack, play with him and keep him safe until the parents come back home.
