The Baby-Sitters Club Wiki

Ian Johnson is a student at Stoneybrook Academy in Ms. Colman's second grade class with Karen Brewer.



His favorite hobby is reading, which he spends much of Snow War doing, and earns him the nickname 'Brain'. He is quieter than the other students in his class and doesn't like to get involved in drama or fights.

In Karen's Figure Eight, he had signed up for ice skating lessons on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday afternoons at the Stoneybrook Ice Arena. He finds skating fun but was embarrassed to tell the everyone in the class about his lessons. Ian didn't want anyone in their class to make fun of him. When Karen told everyone in the class about the show, he wouldn't talk to her since she broke their promise. Once everyone in the class found out and told him how cool it was, Ian started talking to Karen again.

He grew to be a talented skater and performed with Karen in an ice skating recital.
