(*)(**)(*)(*)(***)(***)(****)(*****)(******)(*******)(********)(*********)(**********)(***********)(************)(***********)(*************)(***********)(**************)(***************)(****************)(********)(*****************)(******************)Image: Scholastic(*******************)(*****************)(********************)(*********************)If you’ve been waiting for a sign that it’s time to introduce your kids to The Baby-Sitters Club, Netflix has generously decided to oblige. (**********************)(*********************)The streaming service announced that it has ordered (**************************************) episodes of the classic (*********************************)s and (************************************)s book series-turned-TV show-turned movie. Even the simplest of descriptions has me excited: (**********************)(***********************)(*********************)In this contemporary take on the beloved book series, five best friends launch a baby-sitting business that’s big on fun and adventure.(**********************)(************************)(*********************)(*************************)Oh it sure is(**************************).(**********************)(*********************)Netflix isn’t yet saying when the show will be released, which means you still have time to introduce the series to your tween in preparation. (Go ahead and re-read them yourself while you’re at it; you know, so you can talk about the stories with your kid.) (**********************)(*********************)If you don’t still have them buried in a box in your parents’ basement (I know you probably do), may I recommend you start with this “retro set” of books 1-6 with their original covers and a (bonus!) tin case.(**********************)(*********************)If your kid is a little too young for BSC, don’t be afraid to start with Baby-Sitters Little Sister, a spin-off series about Club President Kristy Thomas’ younger stepsister, Karen. The Little Sisters books are targeted for younger, early readers and are, therefore, the BSC gateway drug.(**********************)(*********************)Between the two series, there are a couple hundred books to get through, so the time to start is now.(**********************)(***************************)(****************************)(*********************)(*****************************)(*************************)For more from Lifehacker, be sure to follow us on Instagram @lifehackerdotcom.(******************************)(*******************************)(**************************)(********************************)(**********************)(*****************)
