I’m excited about this new book series, perfect for fans of series like Whatever After and the Dork Diaries (and of course, The Babysitters Club!).
I’m always looking for books for kids about entrepreneurship which I believe is not an innate talent but a learned skill. Books about entrepreneurship, I believe, encourage this type of endeavor.
As an entrepreneur who fell into starting a business with two friends out of a dorm room, I wish that I had role models when I was a kid. Mentors would have been ideal, but even role models ion books would have helped. My husband and I both run businesses out of our home now, and I think it helped our children start their own. I have their story about indigo clothing co. here and here.
p.s. I gave a presentation on Thinking Like an Entrepreneur for Writers where I related the lessons that I learned from starting two businesses, Aquent and Mizanne Golfwear, to getting a picture book published. The slide deck is here.
I’m giving away a prize pack for Best Babysitters Ever by Caroline Cala. Please fill out the Rafflecopter at the bottom to enter.
Best Babysitters Ever by Caroline Cala
Once upon a time, a girl named Kristy Thomas had a great idea: to form The Baby-Sitters Club with her best friends. And now twelve-year-old Malia Twiggs has had a great idea too. Technically, she had Kristy’s idea. (And technically, little kids seem gross and annoying, but a paycheck is a paycheck). After a little convincing, Malia and her friends Dot and Bree start a babysitting club to earn funds for an epic birthday bash. But babysitting definitely isn’t what they thought it would be.
Three friends. No parents. Unlimited snacks. And, okay, occasionally watching other people’s children. What could possibly go wrong? [middle grade, ages 8 and up]
