Jean Reagan Books


Welcome to my website! I am a children's author living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was born in Fairhope, Alabama, but spent most of my childhood in Japan.

My book, HOW TO BABYSIT A GRANDPA, (2012, Knopf Books for Young Readers) is a humorous picture book about a little boy and his grandpa. It’s a NYTimes bestseller and an Indie Bestseller and it’s been honored by SCBWI’s Crystal Kite Award, shortlisted for the Beehive Book Award, and chosen for the Texas 2 x 2 Reading List.

Its companion book, HOW TO BABYSIT A GRANDMA, is due out March 25, 2014!

My previous book, ALWAYS MY BROTHER, (2009, Tilbury House Publishers) is a story about a serious topic -- sibling loss.

In the summer, my husband and I serve as backcountry volunteers in Grand Teton National Park. We live in a patrol cabin that has no running water or electricity. Elk, deer, bears, and an occasional mountain lion are our neighbors.
