The Lovereading4Kids comment
The bestselling ‘Babysitters Club’ is given a prequel in this brand new title capturing the hopes and fears and above all the friendship of Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia and Stacey. Each has their own family and personal issues; all are beginning to make the change to growing up and even an awareness of boys! It is a glorious summer for the girls and their many readers.
The Babysitters' Club: The Summer Before by Ann M. Martin
Before there was the Babysitters Club, there were four girls: Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia and Stacey. As they start the summer before seventh grade, each of them is on the cusp of a big change. Kristy is still hung up on hoping that her father will return. Mary Anne has to prove to her dad that she's no longer a little girl Claudia is navigating her first major crush. Stacey is leaving her entire New York City life behind. Discover how the four become friends and that friendship grows into a very special club.
A Babysitters Club summer-themed activity sheet is available to download - see 'Reader's Guide' in the book info box.
