Mum and Dad are going out for the evening and a new babysitter is coming round to look after Cherry, Charlie and Baby Lou. She reads them two stories, and stays with them until they fall asleep. They want her to come back the next night too! Charming, funny picture books with gentle, non-didactic messages, the Buttons family will give children the reassurance they need to take their first steps in the world – whether it’s going to the doctor, buying new shoes, visiting the dentist, starting school, staying the night at Gran’s, or having a new babysitter for the first time.
