As part of the YA 80s and 90s Challenge, over at The Book Vixen's blog, I decided to make sure to read some of The Baby-Sitters Club books. So the first one I've decided to read is Mary Anne Misses Logan (#46). I picked this one up through bookmooch.com, but I noticed my local used bookstore has a stack of them and I might have to go back and pick up a few more.
I absolutely loved these books when I was growing up and they are such fun books to revisit. The characters are quirky and each one has such a different personality. They always seem to have a lot of fun and adventures all the while learning some sort of lesson along the way. They also tackle some great topics like diabetes in The Truth About Stacey and dyslexia in Claudia's
What I thought was really interesting to note was that they are re-releasing the BSC books with new covers to appeal to the current generation of young readers. I spotted them today and just had to take a picture to show the new covers vs. the old ones from the 80s.
Did you ever read this series? Did you like it? Would you reread it at all?
For those interested I found a downloadable checklist of all The Baby-Sitters Club books - check it out over at Scholastic.
