Publisher's Summary

Kristy's mom is getting married, and everyone is coming to town to help, bringing their kids with them. Fourteen kids! Kristy is sure she and Stacey, Claudia, Mary Anne, and Dawn can handle it - they're professional baby-sitters after all, and Kristy's mom has offered them a lot of money to take on such a big job.

But will a week of changing diapers, stopping fights, solving mix-ups, and keeping 14 children entertained prove to be too much for the BSC? Can they keep things under control for Kristy's big day?

The BSC's biggest job yet!

I am on a quest to revisit my childhood reading favorites. When I was a child, I loved the Babysitters Club books. I devoured them. I read those, along with the Super Specials, Mysteries, Little Sister books, etc. In fact, I still have all of them to this day in paperback. They were such a big part of my love of reading, I could not part with them. So now that they have come out on Audiobook, I had to check them out. As it turns out, I am not too old to enjoy The Baby-sitters Club. It kind of feels like going home again.

Kristy's Big Day is book 6 in the Baby-sitters Club series. In this book, Kristy's mom is marrying Watson. Due to some scheduling conflicts, the wedding had to be moved up significantly and everyone is in a mad rush to get the wedding planned. When friends and family come to town to help a week early, the BSC gets hired for their biggest job yet. All 5 of the girls will be babysitting together for 5 full days in a row; Monday through Friday 9 am to 5 pm. They will have 14 kids of varying ages to care for, plus Jamie Newton for one of the days since they already agreed to babysit for him. They break the kids up into 5 groups based on age and the girls each have a group they are responsible for. We get to see if the BSC can manage 14-15 kids at once and what challenges they face.

This book is a quick listen and is only 2 hours and 40 minutes. The first 5 books all had the same narrator. This book had a new narrator which made it a bit harder to get used to since I have been listening to these books almost back to back. I was used to the voices of the first narrator.

My love for these books and the nostalgia is holding strong. I am ready to listen to book 7!

Brilliant narration!

Brittany Pressley does a terrific job of narrating this book. In the original printed books, different handwriting gives different "voices" to the characters. Brittany Pressley actually gives different voices to the many characters, making it easy to follow along without the visuals or reminders about who is speaking. I also admire how skillfully Brittany Pressley managed to become the voices of a thirteen year old, a six year old and an adult, without sounding at all the same. Absolutely brilliant!

Great story, okay narration

The narrators for this series aren't very good. They all use terrible impressions for the child characters; high pitched and whiney. Makes the books hard to listen to.

They get better and better.

An excellent listen. The narrator does a great job getting the voice tones and all perfect. Karen, Karen, Karen. LOL. A fine effort from Ann.

Relive your childhood memories of the Babysitter's

The narrator is no longer Ella Fanning but this narrator is just as good. The story of War of the Worlds is mentioned here.

The least favourite for me

I've read the first 5 volumes of the series and for me this one was the least favourite one. The narration was good though, I got used to Elle Fanning's voice for the characters but this new narrator does a pretty decent job. I like her too. But yeah, the story about the wedding,.. I wasn't really interested about it.
