Great Series for Tweens!!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series! When I first read them the title "Babysitters Club", even though I love babysitting and little kids, made me wonder if it would be babyish or anything. I was wrong! These books are great, ESPECIALLY if you love kids, but even if you don't, it's great. I really don't have any concerns, the only thing is that sometimes the characters do things they shouldn't do, and once in one book a little boy gets "kidnapped" by his father (parents divorced) but it turns out to be less a big deal. However, the reader (I think around 9 and up) shouldn't get get "scared" or anything. It's really keeps your nose in the book!
Children with divorced or deceased parents might find some parts a little touchy, as Kristy often wishes her dad would come home and live with the family again, and her feelings about her mom going out with a guy she doesn't likes. Also, later in the series, a character named Abby often recalls her father's death when she was young. There's crush things and boys too, but nothing that would make parents upset; normal early teen stuff.
In all, these books are GREAT, so much fun, plenty of mysteries and exciting moments!!!! I love it!
