    The Mum Minder written by Jacueline Wilson is a book that would mostly appeal to KS2 girls It tells the story of a girl called Sadie; Sadie is nearly nine and considers herself very independent helpful and mature Although Sadie is a very young child she finds herself in a situation where she has to act like an adult Sadie’s mum is a child minder and one day she comes down with flu That is when Sadie becomes a mum minder She takes on her mum’s responsibilities and takes care both of her ill mum as well as a group of children Other mums help as well they take Sadie and other children to their workplaces The children find out how it is to be a police officer office worker and shop assistant It turns out to be a very interesting experience for the children and a bit shocking for the adults The children get to know different responsibilities involved by various occupations while trying to turn workplaces into playgrounds at the same time The book has an interesting structure as it is written in a form of a diary The action takes place during Sadie’s half term brake from Monday to Sunday Before her holidays she was given homework of writing a diary entry every day However unfortunate her mum’s illness might have been it definitely made Sadie’s holidays eventful and her diary interesting Sadie is a good role model for those who read the book; it teaches responsibility care and empathy The book itself is a good example of diary writing and can be followed by English lessons about writing in a diary structure

    My review of The Mum Minder by Jacueline WilsonThis book is about a little girl called Sadie who is 9yrs old and her mom is a childminder The book is written through Sadie’s perspective in a diary format from Monday to Sunday as part of her school project for half term break On Monday her mom starts to feel ill with the flu Sadie steps up to the plate by helping her mom with the children and really reverses her role as a child by tucking her mom up into bed by the end of the day On Tuesday Sadie reckons that she is well capable of looking after the four kid’s that her mom minds 3yr old Gemma 2yr old Vincent baby Clive and Sadie’s own little sister Sara but in the end the children’s mothers decide to take turns bringing all the kids to their work places for a few days Sadie is annoyed that she isn’t being seen as an adult but volunteers to go and help out with the children anywayOn Wednesday Gemma’s mum takes them the police station on Thursday they visit Vincent’s dad’s office and on Friday they spent their day at Clive’s moms chocolate shop Sadie and the rest of the children really enjoy their time exploring each workplace and the younger kid’s create some bit of chaos everywhere they go which adds to the humour of bringing children to work At the end of the book Sadie begins to think about her future career as a police officer a person who works in a fancy office or in a nice chocolate shop She isn’t uiet sure which would best suit her but she is sure of one thing she wouldn’t like to be a childminder after her lively week running around after the all the rascals Throughout the book Sadie mentions that her dad hasn’t been around in a while and her nana helps her mom out minding the children uiet a lot I really admired how Jacueline Wilson picked a typical single parent household situation and writes about it with such positivity and humour It is very important for children to read about others who are going through the same experience and what a fantastic way to get this message across only in a great book Also I applaud Wilson for the underlying message in this story; how important it is for children to help their parents even if it means giving up some play timeOverall I really liked this book; it was a very entertaining account of one week in the life of a young girl

    The Mum Minder is among one of Jacueline Wilson’s famous books Jacueline is one of my favourite children’s authors She creates humour in this heart warming novel I think that this novel would mostly appeal to girls However boys and girls aged seven to eleven years who are in key stage twoThe Mum Minder tells us about the story of a girl called Sadie who is nine years old and her mother is a child minder Sadie considers herself to be mature and independent One day Sadie’s mum feels unwell with the flue This is when the roles of mother and daughter are reversed and Sadie become the mum minder Sadie takes on her mother’s responsibilities looking after her sister and her mother In addition she takes care of a group of children that her mother minds during the week However there are four children to look after and during the week the children’s parents take it in turn bringing all of them to work with them on different days One day they go to the police station the next day they go to an office and the last day the go to a chocolate shop Sadie thinks about her future career at the end of the book and one thing she does not want to be is a child minder after her busy week of running after the children The book is written in diary format as part of Sadie’s school work for half term I think that this would be a good exercise for children in key stage two to help with their writing skills Further there is a message in this book for children that it is important to help their parents In addition it highlights a single parent household situation where the father is not around but nana helps out regularly Children would be able to relate to this who are going through the same experience as Sadie Overall I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book which has a humorous story line

    This is a good book to read in one go like I did It's got a good ending with a small twist which I liked It's a lot happy than some other Jacueline Wilson books For example Vicky Angel It's not super happy through the middle but it's still not depressing It's only a little worrying about not knowing what they are going to do Overall I would recommend this book to someone who wants to jut read a book in one go and has about an hour or two of spare time to do so
