The Book I’m Most Thankful For (2017)

I’m taking a page from Buzzfeed’s book today and posting about the book I’m most thankful for this year.

I’m going to do a throwback to a book series I read growing up: The Baby-Sitters Club.

The Truth about Stacey

There are many things I loved about The Baby-Sitters Club, but mostly I love that it’s about all the things I still think are important: female friendship, girls getting things done, girls working together to get things done, and series fiction. Also, let’s be real: my desire to do a Disney Cruise probably all stems from the first BSC Super Special, Baby-Sitters on Board.

I definitely tried to emulate the structure of the BSC books as a baby writer. I was all about diary entries to start a chapter.

I can’t think of how to wrap this up, but I just want to say that these books were extremely important to me in elementary school. I read them voraciously. I would go to the bookstore just to find the next book in the series. They brought me a lot of joy, and I loved the characters very much.

Stacey was obviously my favorite, which is why I picked her first book as the image for this post.

  1. I devoured The Bobbsey Twins books when I was a child. I can’t remember much about the books except it was (I think?) about a set of girl and boy twins in the same family and they solved mysteries. I am guessing The Baby-Sitters Club was similar?

    1. The Baby-Sitters Club was about a group of friends who started a babysitting business. There were some special mystery editions, but it was mostly about them navigating their relationships with each other, their clients, and their families.
