Welcome Back, Babysitters Club!
Babysitters Club the Prequel on bookshelves now.
Most young girls—and even some young boys—have had experience babysitting. And probably all of you reading this have been under the care of a babysitter at least once!
That common experience is one of many reasons author Ann Martin’s book series of The Babysitter's Club has been so popular over the years. Today, April 1, after 10 years, a new Babysitters Club book is being released!
This is no April Fool’s joke either. The prequel, called The Babysitter’s Club: The Summer Before, will join the 213 other volumes of Babysitter adventures today.
When I first got the news that I was about to interview one of my favorite authors, I was really excited. Almost as excited as I was about the new book coming out.
The interview at Scholastic’s headquarters in New York City was a lot of fun. Ms. Martin and I talked about the motifs hidden between the lines of her new book and the messages she wants to spread to her audience.
I had the most fun talking about that because I could see beyond the outer cover of the book and into the deeper depths of the novel. It was a thrill to get to read the book as a reviewer. I got a first look at what fans have been waiting years for.
I think whether you’re already a fan of the series or not, you’ll enjoy the prequel. And then, you’ll be a fan for sure!
I loved The Babysitters Club: The Summer Before, as you can see in my review of the book. And check out the video of my interview with Ms. Martin. Just click play! You can also send you comments about Martin’s work in the comment section below. Tell us what you think!
