Another Better Book Title submission - “The Babysitters Club,” Ann M. Martin
Among the many things I really love about The Babysitters’ Club: It showed that young women could be excellent businesspeople, and that they could build organizations that were both values-oriented and profitable.
The BSC was my favorite book series as a kid, and those stories still influence the way I think about the world.
It also genuinely had excellent babysitting advice. I babysat for many many years and it taught me to always arrive prepared. While I didn’t have a kid kit and couldn’t always bring fun extras of my own, I at least always had ideas for fun activities AND always knew to ask where the emergency contact numbers were kept.
Plus Claudia and Stacey were my style heroes. And hiding-junk-food heroes. (Claudia, for the latter, obviously. Sorry Stacey. Don’t want to bring up your DIABETES.)
I always brought a kid kit with me to babysit.Source: commonidiom
