Ann M. Martin’s The Baby-sitters Club® Series to be Released as eBooks in December
More than 25 years since The Baby-sitters Club inspired a generation of readers, fans can go back to Stoneybrook, Connecticut, to find old friends, Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, and Stacey, just the way fans remember them. In advance of the ebook launch, starting this month and throughout December, Scholastic will release exclusive content through the official The Baby-sitters Club® Facebook page, www.facebook.com/
“Inspiring a generation of girls to love books and reading is one of the best legacies of The Baby-sitters Club,” said Ellie Berger, President, Scholastic Trade. “The series has maintained a devoted fan base, especially among older readers, some of whom are still obsessed with the characters and remember the books as cozy and comfort reads that they love to this day. The universal themes in the books—friendship, empowerment, entrepreneurialism, and individualism still resonate with readers. With the release of the first twenty Baby-sitters Club titles in e-book format, we will not only reach the existing fans where they are in the digital space, but also expand the readership of this beloved series.”
