Say “Hello” to Your Friends…

Happy birthday to Ann M. Martin, author of The Baby-Sitters Club series! Many girls grew up reading this series, including yours truly. In a way, The Baby-Sitters Club series is similar to the goal of the Children’s Museum of Memphis—the books were fun and enjoyable, but definitely offered opportunities to learn. Personally, I learned about diabetes, various tourist attractions in New York City, and Newberry-award-winning books from reading the series. Ann M. Martin’s books brought joy to many young lives, and we salute her!
