Nielsen addresses one little boy’s concerns about having a babysitter in a funny way

Oh, No, Not a Babysitter. Not Tonight!

It’s funny and adorable how a determined little boy comes up with a few good reasons why having a babysitter is a bad idea.

The thought behind the new book from Melinda A. Nielsen, Oh, No, Not a Babysitter. Not Tonight! ($9.99, paperback, 9781498421102; $4.99, e-book, 9781498421119) is that children can be intimidated by having a babysitter. Most parents can attest to the truth of this statement, especially when kids are not familiar with their guest caretaker for the evening. The author’s mission was to use characters that might make for potential babysitters in a way to transform this awkward experience into a comical one.

“This book is all about twisting the point of view from the parent's to the child's,” states the author. “It’s funny and adorable how a determined little boy comes up with a few good reasons why having a babysitter is a bad idea.”

Melinda A. Nielsen is a new author who loves children. Melinda is also a proud mother of two. She has volunteered in her children’s elementary, middle, and high schools. Furthermore, the author is an avid reader, and has completed the Institute of Children's Literature program.
