Claudia and her older sister Janine are completely different: Janine is brainy, always studying and taking extra high-level classes, while Claudia loves art, fashion, and the babysitters club. The BSC's new idea for the summer is to have a playgroup three times a week, and Claudia is excited to help, but then her beloved grandmother Mimi has a stroke. Claudia jumps in to help take care of Mimi, while Janine stays holed up in her room with her computer. Eventually, an interaction with one of the kids she babysits helps Claudia talk to Janine, who, it turns out, feels like the family has shut her out and forced her toward her studies, rather than the other way around.

There's a neat section at the end about the making of the BSC graphic novels. ( )

What a blast from the past! As always Raina Telgemeier's illustrations are excellent. A good adaptation. ( )

The Baby-Sitters Club is ready for its newest venture -- a summer day camp where their babysitting charges can socialize with other kids and take part in various activities. Meanwhile, Claudia thought her biggest problem at home was living in the shadow of her over-achieving, brilliant sister. But when their beloved grandmother falls ill, she has a lot more to worry about all of a sudden. Can Claudia and her sister Janine pull it together for their grandmother's sake?

This book is the fourth in a graphic novel series based on the middle-grade novels of the same name. Having read the originals years ago when I was a tween myself, I can no longer remember enough about them to make a point-by-point comparison, so this review will be about the graphic novel as a standalone work.

This book picks up right where the last one ended, moving from the spring of the girls' seventh grade year to the summer. Although I suppose you could pick up this book on its own, it certainly stands up better as part of the series. The focus has shifted now to Claudia as narrator, and we see the majority of events from her point of view, with a handful of babysitting exceptions.

What's nice about this series is how it can tackle some heavier issues (e.g., serious illness, academic struggles, etc.) while still remaining light-hearted and full of humor. Everything remains at an appropriate level for young readers. Claudia (and the other girls) continue to show a lot of responsibility and maturity, despite occasional moments of short-sightedness. The sibling rivalry plotlne is one sure to resonant with many children.

The illustrations are in Telegemeier's recognizable style, which allows for a lot of emotion to be conveyed. ( )

BSC #4 focuses on the family life of Claudia and specifically on the dynamics of the relationship between Claudia and her sister Janine. The BSC also face challenges as they start a playgroup for kids in the neighborhood over the summer. ( )

Claudia and her sister, Janine, act like they are from two different planets. Claudia, who pays more attention to her artwork and The Baby-sitters Club than her homework, feels like she can't compete with her perfect sister. Janine is too busy being smart to be nice to anyone-- even their grandmother, Mimi. But Claudia doesn't have to see Janine too much this summer since the Baby-sitters Club is starting a new play group. Janine studies nonstop, gets straight As and even takes college-level courses! But then Mimi has a stroke, and the whole summer changes. Now Claudia is "Mimi-sitting" and Janine is no help at all. The Kishi sisters have to work out their differences even though Janine can be so mean, it will be hard!

I really enjoyed reading this book because it was about how a family must come together to care for their Mimi and work out their differences. I found it to be inspirational because they explained why Janine has been so mean in the past, and how life has been hard for both of them, but they each react differently. I think i could read this book to 3rd grade and up, it would be helpful for students to know how to resolve conflicts and to not let something get so far that a hardship occurs before you can get along. It also allows kids to realize there are many people who get in disagreements or have conflict with one another, but that is not good to hold onto these issues instead it is good to resolve them. Overall, it is a fun story and has great meaning for kids!
