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

22. 4/6/09: Baby-Sitters Club number hundred and zillion: Kristy and the Sister War, by Ann M. Martin (ostensibly). This was not bad as upper-level BSC books go, definitely better than some. I love books with Shannon in them, so this rated highly on that account.

In which K. Ron is a buttinski, as usual. Shannon's sisters are pissed at her, so instead of talking to her, K. Ron allows the kids to prank her. Yeesh, these later books are bad.
