I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

This is a 31 page book about Isabella and her dog, Baxter. Her mom asks her to babysit Baxter while she paints. Isabella does a good job keeping Baxter busy and having fun with him.

Isabella Babysits Baxter is an adorable book with great pictures and is easy to read. I can’t imagine what child wouldn’t like it.

      It’s a cute book! If I had a grandchild (I keep hoping) I’d buy one to read to him/her.
