The Baby-sitters Club is Back! (& Holiday Shopping List)

When I was a kid, I was a pretty big reader. My dad was constantly reading newspapers and my mom was always taking me to the library to pick out books, as well as taking out piles of her own. One Christmas, when I was in second grade, Santa brought me a boxed set of […]

Jen - I loved loved loved this series. For my birthday one year, my mom let me skip school and we went and had two of my BSC books signed by Ann M. Martin. My younger sister got her copy of the Little Sister series signed….how apropos. I’d love to re-read these!

Cynthia - Can you believe that I’ve never read this series? I know shame on me! I wish I would’ve been more of a reading during my middle school years, I really didn’t get into it until I was in high school. I wonder if my daughter would like these books though, she’s not a book lover like me but maybe she would be able to get into these. I think I’ll try it anyways! =)

Alexa Y. - I loved The Baby-Sitters Club! Reading your post made me extremely nostalgic for my own collection. I remember that I used to be very excited whenever I went to a bookstore, just because it gave me the opportunity to buy a new book from the series! I’m happy they’re releasing it in eBook – and that the covers are the same as the originals.

Brie @ Eat Books - This post makes me want to re-read the entire series. Like right now! I wish I still had all my BSC books from childhood 🙁 I still keep an eye out for original covers when I’m at thrift stores, but I’ve yet to come across any of the first few in the series (it’s always higher numbers in the series, and I want the first few!). Like, you, I liked all the BSC members. I think that’s why I loved them so much – you could find a little of yourself in all of them, which made the series so amazing and relatable. And desperately made me want to be a part of their club. I loved the movie too! Aw, now I feel all warm and fuzzy inside! 🙂

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - I love this post so much, Estelle! BSC4LIFE. I loved Claudia and Stacey but I was probably more Kristy/Mary Anne. Haha. Do you remember the BSC videos from book order?? I must track them down.

elena - eee I love this post! I totally know what you mean about growing up but having the characters still feel older even though they’re technically younger. I remember reading the California Diaries but not much about them, haha. I used to devour these books! I think I would be a Claudia. 😉

Tara - This is one of my favorite childhood series EVER! I named my dog Claudia after the BSC character (even though Mary Anne was my favorite). I still have all of these books at my mom’s house, right next to my collections of The Little Baby-Sitters Club books and Goosebumps 🙂

Emma @ Hopeful Happiness - LOVED the BSC! I was bummed when I reached their age and wasn’t nearly as awesome as they were. I had not heard of the California Diaries before. I may just ahve to check them out! In addition to all of the books I also had the BSC board game. My sister and I spent hours playing and tried to play it again a little while ago only to find it was not nearly as fun as it was when we were little.

Kristin - Thank you for celebrating this wonderful series. It was a favorite of mine growing up and one I re-read over and over.
