- Julia Brewer, 20-year au pair agency professional
"'The Essential Au Pair Guide' is the perfect reference for any young person considering a year in the U.S. as an au pair. Kim understands the program inside and out - having hosted au pairs for her two boys, and also working for an au pair agency. She is truly passionate about cultural exchange programs and realizes the value they provide to all who participate, and the world as a whole. 'The Essential Au Pair Guide' covers everything from deciding whether or not to become an au pair, to selecting the right host family, to the realities of living with an American family. Every prospective au pair should read this guidebook. It truly is 'essential' and I wholeheartedly recommend it!"
