Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.

I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.

The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the
Similar to other later BSC books. Thin plot. Thin characters (particularly Kristy). Some 'deep' character realisations. Luckily these concerned Claudia and her sister Janine (who has always been one of my favourite characters) and their relationship. Also about Claudia and her seventh and eighth grade friends.

I didn't like this one because I never enjoyed the books where Claudia was back in 7th grade.
