The Baby-Sitters ClubCheck this out!
The Baby-Sitters Club books by Ann M. Martin

Why is it cool?
The Baby-Sitters Club books are for ages 7 and up. It’s about 4 girls named Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia and Stacey who form a baby sitters club to get money to buy stuff. It tells you about all of the weird, scary, and funny baby sitting jobs they have.

Once you start reading The Baby-Sitters Club you’ll never want to stop. It’s interesting and eye catching, the best kind of book!

There are 4 The Baby-Sitters Club books, they are called The Summer Before, Kristy’s Great Idea, The Phantom Phone Calls, and Stacey’s Secret. In all the books you can feel how Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia add Stacey feel and that’s why I like them. For example, in the book The Phantom Phone Caller, I could feel how scared Claudia was when her neighbours came to her house and told everybody that they were robbed.

Is it educational?
No, it’s not educational, it’s just fun to read.

Emily’s bio

Kids’ panellist Emily

Kids’ panellist Emily

Hi, I’m Emily and I’m nine years old.

My favourite role model is my mom. My mom is my role model because she cares about me and tries to make me grow up to be mature and independent. My mom is really nice and thoughtful.

My favourite subject is French because my French teacher is really nice and the work we do is fun.

I take piano lessons, dance lessons and was in the choir at my school! Playing the piano is not easy, it takes practice but that is why I love it so much! Dancing isn’t easy either, you have to do lots of hard dance moves like Russian jumps and pirouettes!

Monsters University is my favourite movie because it’s all about friendship and it catches your eye.

Dana (my aunt) is my favourite artist because she works with different materials. I am a good artist also. I work with acrylic paint on canvas.

My favourite television program is The Next Step. It’s a show about dancers. I like it because it shows me how competitive dancers are, and how it affects their dancing.
