Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Amelia Bedelia is a lovable character who always says exactly what she thinks. In this easy-to-read book she loves being best friends with Jen who lives next door. But when Jen moves, Amelia is sad. She misses the activities they used to do together like dressing up and playing. However, she finds that Mrs. Adams, a grandma full of fun, has settled into the house. Amelia soon learns that Mrs. Adams makes a great friend, too. This book from the "I Can Read" series consists of short sentences, familiar words, and simple concepts that offer young readers a chance for successful independent reading. Readers can readily identify with the theme of friendship. In addition, this offers children the opportunity to see that making new friends holds promise. Hilarious illustrations back up the text—literally—and add to the book's appeal. This book makes an excellent supplement to library shelves in preschools and early elementary schools.
