These are book series for girls aged 11-13 years old. Books for girls that they might not see on their own, or might not pick up without you maybe mentioning or pointing them out to them. Which is how my daughter came across some of these books.

I am that parent. The one that lets the kids pick out whatever books they want from the children’s and youth sections of the library. I do introduce new book series to them all the time because I know they’ll enjoy them and maybe they won’t find them otherwise.
Over the weekend my daughter found a great new book series though that I want to share with you first. The Wizard’s of Once. Much to her delight she lucked out and got the first book in this series. She cannot wait to read the others as well now that she has found this one. The others are Twice Magic, and Knock Three Times.

The Babysitters Club
I read the Babysitter Club books growing up, they are now referred to as the “retro” set. You can actually buy the first 6 books in a collectors tin.
With the new Netflix TV series coming out the Babysitters club books have gotten an updated look, but still have the same great content, without all the adult content that a lot of newer books can have. You’ll have to check them out for your daughters, and nieces.
They have a new version now and they are actually graphic novels. Which I have no problem with. They are still a fun book, following the adventure of best friends as they babysit and have fun together.

Our librarian in Saskatchewan turned my girls onto these books, and we just realized they had another book come out in May 2020. We’re excited over here! There is Invisible Emmie, Positively Izzy, Just Jaime, and Becoming Brianna.
