Q & A: Library Shorts Episode 2

In which Julia takes a 90s flashback and visits The Baby-Sitter's Club

Julia's enthusiasm for all things The Baby-Sitters Club is one of things I absolutely adore about her.  She's nostalgic just like me, and she's a bit nerdy (so totally in an awesome way Julia!) just like me.  She was hilariously giddy after meeting Ann M. Martin last November at a state conference which totally makes me feel better about fan-girling out when I meet my favorite authors.

Now I know I read the series when I was in middle school, but for the life of me, I can't remember a single book or which girl I connected with the most.  I do, however, remember the movie.  In fact, less then a year ago I went searching for all of the movies I used to love as a pre-teen/teen and re-watched them.  The Baby-Sitters Club was exactly how I remembered it, sweetly innocent and awesome.  And I realized that they really don't make movies like that anymore.  They don't make entertaining, clean movies that are just fun.  Where are the Now and Then, Camp Nowhere, and Little Giants today?  Why does everything have to be so angsty and edgy?  They probably existI'm probably just too old to appreciate them now.  But I don't think that's it, because my favorite late-night treat is to watch reruns of The Wizards of Waverly Place.

So to keep the 90s nostalgia train going, what are your top 5 favorite 90s kids movies?

My five in no particular order: The Sandlot, 3 Ninjas, Camp Nowhere, My Girl, Now and Then!
