These books are about seven girls that have started a baby-sitting club/business. It tells about their lives in baby-sitting, school, and home. These books are fun, interesting, and get you ready for basic situations as a young teenager. They have situations with boys, business, and home. I've read almost all of the series and I've been reading the series so long that I fell like I really know the whole gang. There is so much detail in these books and that really makes you feel like you're in their world. So go Ann M. Martin! And YOU SHOULD BUY THESE BOOKS TODAY!

The series are based around a group of friends who love babysitting and kids. Each character has a totally different personality, so every reader can relate to at least one of them.
Each book deals with a different part of growing up. Boyfriends and best friends, moving away, school, family troubles -- it's all there.
After reading a Babysitters book, I am left with a warm feeling inside. I feel as if I know each person - organized Kristy, shy Mary Anne, artistic Claudia, sophisticated Stacey, indivisualistic Dawn, down to earth Mallory, Talented Jessi and sporty Abby.
Well done to Ann M Martin, the author. She has created a series of books that al pre-teen girls should read. I think they are absolutely superbly fantabulous!!

I began reading these books when I was in 5th grade and remember continuing to read them through Jr. High School. Now, I am 24 years old, pregnant with my first baby (a girl) and have pulled out those books to dust off and pass onto my daughter. These books are light-hearted, fun and still teach a good lesson about friendship, handling jobs, money, etc. I think these are fabulous books and recommend them to all!

My mother wanted to make sure I could read before I started school, in hopes that I would achive a better education. I was reading picture books when I was 2-3 and began reading BSC books when I turned 4. Now I am 13, and in my free time the only place I'd want to be is reading. I love Kristy because of her great ideas, Mary Anne for her patience, Claudia and Mallory for their tallents in art and writing, Dawn for her individual character, Jessi for her devoted passion to ballet, Stacey for her maturity in caring for her diabetes,Logan for not letting the boys push him around, Shannon for her brain, and Abby for coping with her fathers death. I can relate to these girls in so many different ways, I feel as if I belong to the club!!!!!! I live in Australia, so I don't get the books as soon as they come out, but when they do, you can be sure I've got them. I have over 150...and nothing's gonna stop me from getting the rest

Wow! These books are some of the best BSC books around. Because I live in the UK I and other fellow Bsc readers cannot get are hands of some of the more recent ones but the frst books are always the best and this is no exception. And if you like these books you will love the Friends Forever and the CA diaries series. Check it out!

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 series grows with them! Terrific Author!

I have read Ann M. Martin's groundbreaking series since book
#1, Kristy's Great Idea. I was seven years old, and in the
second grade. I wanted to be Kristy, because she was a mature seventh grader. Now, as a Duke University junior, at nineteen,
I still enjoy these books. Ms. Martin has created a world of
friendship, business, children and real-life pleasures and
crises. She has Stacey dealing with a potentially life-
threatening disease, more than half the club coming from
single parent homes, and also celebrates the wonder and joy
of being 11 and 13. At its root, this series champions the
friendships that we all had when we were that age, or at
least wish that we did.
