My daughter and I love these

Never read this as a kid and was inspired by the Netflix short documentary “The Claudia Kishi Club” to pick up the series. Ann Martin was definitely ahead of her time when she wrote these books and I’m glad that it inspired a generation of Asian American women and women in general. Would add this to chapter books I hope my son picks up when he’s older.

The Babysitters club, by Ann M. Martin is a good, and a funny book. It is about a club of girls how want to make a babysitter club to baby sit kids. When they were doing it, they were a lot of money and a lot of babysitting kids. But then they were not having a lot of calls to babysit kids. So they had to find out what was happening. If you want to know, try reading the book to figure it out. At the end they had find out what happened. I think kids should read this book because, it is funny.

It was AMAZING! The Babysitters Club is my most favorite book series (other than KOTLC) and it kept my interest the ENTIRE time! I REALLY want to be a babysitter and love learning about all of the Babysitting adventures that Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, Stacy, Dawn, and Mallory get themselves into. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to just about anyone who likes comedy, friendship, and a good adventure all in one. Love this!!❤️❤️❤️🌈🌈🌈😘😘😘
