Happy Birthday to a series that really got me interested in reading when I was a kid. Thirty years ago today the first book in The Baby-Sitters Club was released! I can't believe it's been thirty series since I was first introduced to this series. I loved this series as a kid. Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, Stacey, and the whole gang were all characters I loved reading about. Plus they made baby sitting seem fun. More than that, these characters were ones that were so relatable to me. Now I feel really old..... Here's to a whole new generation of young readers getting introduced to a wonderful series.
