  •     This book was on the summer reading list for my first-grader. It arrived quickly and he enjoys reading it.

  •     I like this book! Today was a very special day for D.W. My favorite part was when she had to go past the Tibel twins' house. There, they were jumping all about yelling, "D.W. is our favorite person." D.W. gasped. She grabbed Arthur yelling, "I'm too young to die!" "It's ok, D.W. You'll be safe," Arthur said. I think you should read this book because it is funny.

  •     If your child likes Arthur, D.W., and the Tibble Twins, he/she should like this book. It's a sturdy board book that my daughter wants to read over and over again. The story is cute, and the illustrations are nice too.

  •     My family loves the Arthur series and we have quite a collection of the books. Arthur Babysits is a story about Arthur's adventure sitting for the Tibble Twins. The twins are known for being a bit.... rambunctious and Arthur is in for quite a time when he agrees to babysit. We love D.W.'s role in this story, always cautioning Arthur and giving "advice." This story is one of our favorites because the kids love the antics of the twins and us parents love the creativity of Arthur!

  •     This book is a great book. I like it because it shows that there are ways to calm children (or should I say all people)down. Everyone should read this.

  •     Great for helpinh
