Stories From Days Gone By – Kristy’s Great Idea

My Stories from Days Gone By series revisits books from my childhood to see how they read today.

Baby-Sitters Club Kristys Great IdeaThe Baby-Sitters Club #1 – Kristy’s Great Idea by Ann M. Martin

It’s been a long time since I read this book, the first in the prolific series. Although I have memories of “The Baby-Sitters Club” as a mainstay of my childhood reading, I could not remember many details. The writing is simplistic and very 80s. I laughed a couple of times when there were descriptions of clothing. Despite some slightly dated references, I feel that the plots–in not just this book but the series–are good, clean, fun stories for kids growing up. They are educational without being boring and have morality without being preachy. All in all, I will declare that “The Baby-Sitters Club” holds up rather well over time.
