Learn to read with the classic Amelia Bedelia!

Ever since Amelia Bedelia made her debut in 1963, young readers have been laughing out loud at the antics of this literal-minded but charming housekeeper.

Amelia Bedelia is helping out at the library! She may not know the difference between a stegosaurus and a thesaurus, but Amelia Bedelia will go to any lengths to make reading fun. This Level 2 I Can Read is perfect for kids who read on their own but still need a little help.

"No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language--and no adult can fail to notice that she's usually right when she's wrong."--The New York Times Book Review

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "K-Gr. 3. A worthy addition to the Amelia Bedelia series, 40 years after the first adventure debuted, this latest escapade is set in motion when Amelia returns some books to the library. Mrs. Page, the librarian, needs new book jackets, so Amelia, naturally, obliges and fashions some cute little coats, complete with sleeves and buttons, for the books. From there, the queen of literal mindedness creates a clamor for bookmarks, makes a pen drop, and even drives off with the library's bookmobile. Parish fashions an enjoyable set of misunderstandings with a happy ending true to his aunt's formula (the head librarian laughs at being called a know-it-all and announces a parade), while Sweat's cartoony, watercolor-and-pen illustrations are in tune with the zaniness of previous Amelia Bedelia adventures. A fun visit to a familiar place, this is also a good introduction to such familiar phrases as devouring a book, judging a book by its cover, and going by the book (or as Amelia would hear it, Go buy the book ). --Abby Nolan Copyright 2003 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Amelia Bedelia is back and she's volunteering in the library in Amelia Bedelia, Bookworm by Herman Parish (the nephew of creator Peggy Parish), illus. by Lynn Sweat. Misunderstandings abound when literal-minded Amelia Bedelia heads to a bookstore after the librarian tells her "to go by the book" (as in, "rules are rules"). (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
