The Babysitters' Club

I used to love these books when I was a kid and decided to re-read them now that I'm often in need of simple, brainless activity. They totally hit the spot - great for reading a few pages while doing night-time feeds with Baby! I liked the thought that I was a child when I read them the first time and here I am now, re-visiting them with my own child in my arms.

The collection I got has the first three books - 'Kristy's Great Idea', 'Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls' and 'The Truth About Stacey'. I doubt you'd like them unless you read them as a kid - there's no great philosophy to the story lines, they're just about a group of 12-year-old girls who form a babysitting club. There are more books in the series than I remember, I'll see what's available on Bookmooch!

Hope everyone is doing well - I still don't have the hang of fitting blogging into my days, but I'm working on it! Everything else is going well, I'm loving being a Mom and dreading going back to work in June! :-)

As with most English-language children's classics, I completely missed these growing up.

I'm glad you're going well, Joanna! Don't worry about blogging..these things take time :)

Hi Nymeth! How strange, I was just over at your blog when you were over here :-)

Joanna said...

Hi, it's my first time here. You have a great blog :)

I used to love reading the Babysitter's Club series too whilst growing up. Such nostalgia :)

Loved the BSC, and still do as an adult! Blogging about it myself these days. Who was your favorite sitter? Mine was Mary Anne.

Joanna - Thanks! A good dose of nostalgia is so nice now and again!

Sadako - Mine was Kristy, I wanted to have a great idea like hers too! :-)
