The Baby-Sitters Club Wiki

The Dodson Family is a family that lives in Stoneybrook, Connecticut. The family is never seen but mentioned in Kristy and the Missing Fortune and The Truth About Stacey.

General[]

Although the family is never seen, when they leave for Florida and leave Jessi Ramsey in charge of their plants, the members of the Baby-sitters Club learn more about the Arboretum. The Stoneybrook arboretum becomes a central part of the mystery of Kristy and the Missing Fortune. It's noted that Mrs. Dodson has a green thumb and leaves Jessi with three pages of notes.

The family has at least one child for the BSC to sit for in The Truth About Stacey. Its mentioned that Mrs. Newton called them about not trusting the Baby-sitters Agency. They agreed that, if nothing else, they ought to know their babysitters in advance, and not trust the agency to find sitters for them. It's likely that they also complained about the agency when Mrs. Newton mentioned that some families she called voices concerns.

Trivia[]

  • Since they have at least one child and able to go to Florida in the middle of the school year, its likely he or she is under the age of 5 since that's the typical age for kindergarten.
