I used to be a huge baby sitter club fan and though I'm in college now, I still read some of the books time to time. Keep Out Claudia was my first baby sitters club book and I'd been hooked since. The descriptions of the band rehearsals and the Lowells was well written, and when I was reading it, I could feel the hurt Claudia, Jessi and the rest of the club felt towards Mrs Lowell's prejiduce. And I also feel that a rainbow is nothing without all the beautiful colours, just the way this world is nothing without all the beautiful people of different races, colours and ethnicity. We could all learn a lesson from this book about how prejiduce is irrational, especially for children. Buy it today
This book is also very shocking. I almost couldn't believe it when Mrs. Lowell asked for a "blonde-haired, blue-eyed sitter". I was like WHAT??? What makes one better because they've got blonde hair? I never understood that.
It's so sad that there is racism in this world. It's not like we have a choice of what race we want to be. And the one who did a review on March 22, 2004, you were right on the ball. The world IS a wonderful place but we're lucky we have so much diversity. But sadly I think there wil always be racism, no matter what. The only place free of racism? Heaven.
Anyway, the book itself is well written. I really like how Martin buidls the suspense. First Mary Anne goes and the kids are angels . . . slightly odd, but angels. And Martin foreshadows the fact that those poor kids are racist when they are watching TV and laugh at the Asian kids on the screen. Then Claudia shows up and the kids are brats. Next Jessi shows up and she can't even go inside the house! Kristy goes next and is the one who figures ut the Lowells are racist. then the mother doesn't even let them see a Jewish play. The kids are disappointed, implying that they are not the bad guys, the mother is. Ugh that family was so snobby and racist . . . why do people have to be that way . . .
This is probably the most realistic bsc book. Martin does a great job of shedding light on to this very sad but real subject. I'm just glad I live in a country where it's basically okay to be anything. But maybe I'm just ignorant and don't want to admit that there is still rabid racism going on.

All though I liked the book. It shows a severe case of bullying.
Jessi and Claudia handled it very well.

This book dealt with a more serious topic than most of the others in the series-racism. This topic has been touched upon by some of Jessi's book but not really much else. Read morePublished on March 22, 2013 by sarah_says
This book was great. The Lowells are just jerks. There isn't anything wrong with Claudia's clothes and who cares that she's Japanese? The Lowells sure do care. Read morePublished on June 23, 2007
