" four friends and babysitting- what could be more fun?"
• • •

The Baby-Sitters Club is a series of children's books, written by Ann M. Martin and published by Scholastic between 1986-2000, which sold over 175 million copies.

The series is about a group of middle school students living in the fictional town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut. They run a business called the Baby-sitters Club that helps parents find babysitters from the club available for jobs by calling during their club meetings. Meetings take place Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. The club runs financially on dues and fundraising, and the babysitters write diaries of their jobs to help each other. The members of the club are also best friends, although they go through many conflicts throughout the series.

The club starts out with four members (Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, and Stacey McGill), eventually expanding to ten. All of the main characters are thirteen, with the exception of junior members Mallory Pike and Jessica Ramsey, who are two years younger. When the club was founded (in 1986), the four members were in the seventh grade, but ten books later (1988), they are promoted to the eighth grade. From there, they are frozen in time until the very end of the series (2000), in which they graduate from middle school.

BSC Theme Song


1x01 Mary Anne and the Brunettes
In the pilot episode of The Babysitters Club, we see Mary Anne come to terms with her relationship with Logan, although another girl, Marcie, also likes him. The Babysitters Club must come to the rescue when they suspect Logan of cheating on Mary-Anne. But he would never do that...would he?

1x02 Dawn & The Haunted House

1x03 Stacy's Big Break
Stacey is discovered as a model! After being asked to enter a fashion show, Stacey is quickly entered into a modelling competition, called New Faces. Stacey has the looks and personality to go all the way in the world of modelling, but can she really leave the babysitters club behind? After-all, modelling would take up all of her time...leaving no time for her friends, and Charlotte.

1x04 Kristy & the Great Campaign
Kristy decides the best way to get her newest babysitting charge to come out of her shell is to help her run in the school election. But will Kristy take things too far, and put Courtney off joining the elementary school council forever?

1x05 The Babysitters Club Special Christmas
The Babysitters Club all want to help out at the local hospital over Christmas, cheering up the children and bringing some Christmas cheer. But they don't count on one member becoming a patient there...

1x06 Claudia & the Missing Jewels
Claudia's handmade jewellery creates quite a stir at a school fair, and a woman puts in an order to sell Claudia's earrings at her shop! The BSC are so excited, but when the earrings Claudia makes go missing at Kristy's house, they don't know what to do! They must find the theif if Claudia wants to get her earrings back in time.

1x07 Dawn and the Dream Boy
Dawn has a crush on a very dreamy boy! When he asks for her phone number she is ecstatic! But the problem is...Mary-Anne also lives at Dawn's house, and shares the same phone number. Will Dawn's dream date turn into a disaster, and can the step-sisters relationship survive it?

1x08 Claudia & the Secret Passage
Claudia loves the secret passageway in Dawn's house, and when she finds a very old letter there she has her own mystery to solve! But who wrote the letter? Can Claudia finally solve the mystery and re-unite two estranged sisters?

1x09 Jessie and the Mystery of the Stolen Secrets
Secrets are no longer safe in Stoneybrook! When Charlotte confides in Stacey about her crush on Buddy, the entire town finds out! And when Jessie sits for a Hollywood star, somehow everyone suddenly knows where he lives! Can the babysitters find out who is behind all of the secret-telling?

1x10 The Baby-Sitters and the Boy Sitters

1x11 Dawn Saves the Trees
Friend-of-the-earth Dawn is furious when he discovers that a road is going to be built through her favourite park - and a lot of trees will be cut down in the process! Can Dawn rally together all her friends and babysitting charges to help save the trees?

1x12 Stacey Takes a Stand
Stacey is tired of her always being torn between her mom and dad, who are divorced. Its not fair that she has to choosen between them and travel back and forth across the country all the time. But will they finally listen to her tell them this?

It's the end of school year, and the BSC hold a giant sleepover, where they all remember their favourite babysitting stories and share them with each

Kristy Thomas, a thirteen-year-old tomboy, and President of the Babysitter's Club, comes up with an idea to open a day camp for their child clients. Her best friend, Mary Anne Spier along with stepsister Dawn Schafer, offer their parents' back yard to serve as the camp site. All of the club members (Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Dawn Schafer, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, Mallory Pike, and Jessi Ramsey) vow to keep a close eye out for misbehaving kids, which would later include Kristy's younger brother, David Michael.

Meanwhile, Kristy faces problems when she meets her estranged father (who abandoned her family seven years ago), and faces a dilemma about telling her friends and family about this. Mary Anne is the only one she tells of the visit, and she too is under pressure as the curiosity of her friends grows. Claudia is stuck in summer school and is forced to retake a test, or face repeating a grade and being forced to drop out of the club. Stacey McGill has a crush on a seventeen-year-old boy, Luca. As their relationship ensues, she faces problems telling him about her diabetes and later, her age. This is revealed after a fateful trip to a New York City club, in which a bouncer does not allow her into a club because she is underage. Luca is outraged, unable to believe that Stacey is thirteen years old. Meanwhile, Dawn must face her neighbor, the fiery Mrs.Haberman, who becomes increasingly upset because of the camp activities that are taking place next door. Also, Mallory is in the process of writing her first novel while Jessi continues to dance her way through life and closer to her dream of becoming a professional dancer.

At the end of the movie, it is Kristy's thirteenth birthday and she has arranged to go to an amusement park with her father. Promising her friends she would make it to her own party, Kristy goes to meet her father, but he does not show up. She begins to walk home until her friends show up in Luca's car after Mary Anne's confession about the return of Kristy's father. Luca drives the girls back to Mallory's parents' cabin and present Kristy with a half-melted birthday cake. As Stacey is saying good-bye to Luca, he tells her that he will be coming to Stoneybrook again next year. Delighted, Stacey tells him that she will be fourteen when he returns. They share a kiss just before Luca departs. At the end of the movie, the girls, in return for making Mrs.Haverman's summer so miserable with their summer camp, give the greenhouse to her. Meanwhile, Kristy witnesses a miracle when Jackie Radowsky hits his first home run, nailing Cokie, who is sitting in a tree nearby, in the process.

I love the Babysitters club! I still admittedly read the books when I feel like being a kid again.

Sometimes I think about doing that too. A lot of the novels I try to read now just aren't as fun as those books.
