When some of my favorite blogging friends announced a Kids Summer Reading Club, I knew we needed to join the fun. Marissa always has been my little book-worm. Girlfriend LOVES to read, just like I did when I was her age. It isn’t abnormal for her to walk around with her nose stuck in a book or for me to catch her staying up WAY past her bedtime because “Mommy, it was just so good I couldn’t stop reading.”
This months book was The Baby-sitters Club, Kristy’s Great Idea. This book was two firsts for Marissa. #1 It was her first ever Babysitters Club book. #2 It was also her very first graphic novel. Both firsts seemed to be a hit, she loved it. It only took her one afternoon/ evening to read it and she liked it so much she decided to read it again. I definitely see us picking up some more of these on our next trip to the library!
A little Q&A about the book
#1 What prompts Kristy to start The Baby-Sitters Club?
Her mom was having trouble finding a babysitter.
#2 How does keeping a record of their babysitting jobs help the girls?
It helped them to learn about the people they were babysitting for and to be prepared the next time they babysit for them again.
#3 Each girl has a job within the club that suits their personality. Which job fits your personality?
The president! I want to be the one in charge!
#4 What was your favorite part of the book and why?
The very end because they got to have a pizza party and Stacey told the truth.
#5 What type of club would you like to form with your friends? Why?
A club that helps sick or injured animals. Because I love animals!
#6 Which babysitting job do you think was the hardest? Which babysitting job do you think was the easiest? Why?
Hardest – Kristy babysitting Buffy and Pinky. Kristy was expecting kids and they were dogs!
Easiest – When they had to babysit at Watson’s house. Because they were pretty good kids.
We are so excited to find out what next months book is!
