Comments Jessi's Baby-sitter

  • Ciara

    this is the one where mr. & mrs. ramsey invite aunt cecelia to come live with them & help out now that mrs. ramsey is going back to work (at an advertising firm, like 92% of all working mothers in stoneybrook). cecelia is mr. ramsey's older sister--much older, as far as i can tell, if jessi's parents are close in age. cecelia has children of her own, but they are grown & she was recently widowed, while mr. ramsey has an infant son. so there's like a twenty year age difference between [...]

    this is my first time reading this book!as was foreshadowed in the previous book, Baby-sitters' Island Adventure, jessi's aunt cecelia comes to live with them. she throws the whole ramsey routine out of whack, treating jessi and becca like they're stupid babies and not playing with squirt at all while not letting jessi and becca play with him either. meanwhile, jessi decides to help jackie rodowsky with his science fair project and treats him like a stupid baby herself (doing all the work for hi [...]

    Jessi's mother returns to work, and her aunt Cecelia moves in to take care of Squirt. And Jessi and Becca. Neither of them are happy with this, and commence to childish pranks. This book was released for the first time very shortly after I discovered this series, and I remember seeing a big display of it in the bookstore. I didn't get around to reading it for awhile though.Things I remember from reading this as a kid:Aunt Cecelia seeming like exactly the kind of person who would make living in y [...]

    Jessi always had the makings of being an interesting character, but her books were always some of the most boring. This one was very meh too, especially the B-plot about the science fair. I never cared for Aunt Cecelia when she started showing up, and I don't know how Jessi dealt with her for so long. I'd have gone squealing to my mom asap. Anyway the whole thing was kind of a snooze fest. A lot of build up, for not much payoff.

    Jessi’s aunt Cecelia moves in, primarily to help care for Squirt, when Jessi’s mother gets a full-time job. Jessi resents having to answer to Cecelia, who is more strict than her parents; dictates what Jessi eats and how she dresses; and always seems suspicious that Jessi trying to pull a fast one, undermining the life of baby-sitting responsibility and ballet achievement Jessi is trying to live. A subplot in which Jessi tries to help Jackie Rodowsky enter a model volcano in the science fair [...]

    I'll admit that this isn't one of my favorite books, but it's one of the more likeable Jessi books, soah.OH NO! Jessi's Aunt Cecelia is moving in to take care of Jessi, Becca, and Squirt! *GASP* Seriously, it's so wrong babysitting an ELEVEN-year-old.That being said, though, despite Jessi's age (eleven) is young enough to be babysat for, A.C. is being over controlling and strict. A.C. forbids Jessi going to a BSC meeting for being ten minutes late. She chooses Jessi and Becca's clothes and decid [...]

    I remember thinking that this one was another good example of kids reacting to problems in highly inefficient, silly ways. In this case, Jessi is frustrated with her Aunt Cecelia becoming her caretaker and suddenly turning into a dictator (questioning her babysitting jobs, controlling what she eats, etc.). So she and her sister decide the obvious thing to do is play stupid pranks on their aunt so she'll want to leave. This reminds me of the ridiculous crap Dawn pulled to get Mary Anne out of her [...]

  • Julie Decker

    Jessi's Aunt Cecelia is a drag. When she moves in with the family, she suddenly starts telling Jessi what to do and treating her like a baby, commenting on her diet and trying to control whether she pursues her babysitting. Jessi's had it, and she hopes her actions will make Aunt Cecelia feel as unwelcome as her unsolicited comments feel!This felt like a wholly unnecessary book to me because its problems are solved by doing what every other book has advocated: ENGAGING IN COMMUNICATION. I cannot [...]

    Jessi's mom has decided to go back to work and they need somebody to watch Squirt during the day and Becca after school. So Jessi's dad's sister, Aunt Cecelia, is going to move in with them. She's apparently way older than her brother, because she is a widow(er?) with grown kids and doesn't want to live at home alone anymore. Jessi and Becca are horrified by this turn of events, but of course, they don't sit down and have a rational discussion with their parents. No, they decide to play stupid p [...]

  • Jennifer

    Not too bad. There's a continuity gap with the island trip. I think that took place in a super special. Jessi's aunt moves in and is crazy strict. I'm really not sure how the parents didn't just talk to the aunt moving in and mention important things like a recurring meeting, or that the kids can be ten minutes late. I also wonder why it's such a big deal with the snacks and clothes. The parents have bought the clothes and food, so what they wear and eat shouldn't be a big deal. The sub plot is [...]

    Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.Awesome books that girls will love! And the [...]

  • Maria Elmvang

    Yet another book where it REALLY frustrates me that people don't speak up early enough. I was a shy 11-year-old, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have accepted being treated like a little kid like that.

  • Sp101*

    Jessi's shocked! Her Aunt Cecelia is moving into their house to babysit Jessi and her siblings. Jessi is going to have a babysitter when she is one herself! Aunt Cecelia even is telling Jessi what to do and exactly when to do it. Jessi thinks she's old enough to take care of herself.

  • Kate

    Watch out for Jessi's grandmother! She'll wave a spoon at your Huxtable sweater! Jessi might only be 11, but she is plenty old enough to baby-sit and take care of her brother Squirt with no supervision whatsoever!

  • Sally

    On the one hand, Aunt Cecilia is a terror who treats Jessi like she's a little kid. On the other hand, Jessi is ELEVEN! Funny how you read this being all grr at the Aunt until you consider that in the real world, an eleven-year-old does need a sitter. ;)

    The narrator perspective for , The baby sitter club was to tell the reader how the narrator feel on how the baby sitters should baby sit. Jessie didn't like his auntie being bossy to him.

  • Kimberly A. Youra

    Great BookThis book is awesome. It teaches a couple valuable lessons in it, and still has a strong plot. Well done!!!

  • Kimberly

    I loved the BSC series when I was younger and even more glad that I held on to them all these years so my children would be able to enjoy them as well. I would recommend for tween girls.

    Good book

  • Rhiannon1220

    This whole series is great for girls between 11-15 years old. I read every last one of them as I was growing up.
