Review: Kristy and the Mother’s Day Surprise by Ann M. Martin

Review: Kristy and the Mother’s Day Surprise by Ann M. Martin

Mother’s Day is coming up and the Baby-sitters have the same problem they do every year: What do they get their mothers? Kristy, especially, wants to do something nice for her mom. Mrs. Brewer has been acting kind of strange and secretive lately, and Kristy’s worried about her… But then Kristy gets another one of […]

Review: Kristy and the Walking Disaster by Ann M. Martin

Review: Kristy and the Walking Disaster by Ann M. Martin

They’re lean, they’re mean, they’re the pride of Stoneybrook. Who are they? They’re Kristy’s Krushers! When Kristy sees how much her little brothers and sister want to play softball, she starts a rag-tag team of her own. Maybe Kristy’s Krushers aren’t world champions (how could they be, with Jackie Rodowsky, walking disaster, playing for them?), […]

Review: Kristy and the Snobs by Ann M. Martin

Kristy’s mom got married again last summer and now Kristy and her family in a new neighborhood. The kids aren’t very friendly. In fact, they’re… well, snobs. They criticize Kristy’s clothes.

Review: The Summer Before by Ann M. Martin

Before there was the Baby-Sitters Club, there were four girls named Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, and Stacey McGill. As they start the summer before seventh grade (also before they start the BSC), each of them is on the cusp of a big change. Kristy is still hung up on hoping that her […]

Review: Kristy’s Big Day by Ann M. Martin

Review: Kristy’s Big Day by Ann M. Martin

For me, Kristy’s Big Idea probably serves as the first example that the girls in these books are actually capable of being responsible baby sitters. Considering the title of the series, I know that seems like a duh statement, but up until this point they really fail to impress. After all, no one wants a […]

Review: Dawn and the Impossible Three by Ann M. Martin

Review: Dawn and the Impossible Three by Ann M. Martin

You know what I’ve realized I love the most about The Baby-sitters Club? It’s the fact you can curl up with a book and read it in an hour and a half. These past few weeks, when I’ve come across a book I’ve struggled to get through for whatever reason (work, working out, family life, […]
