Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Amelia Bedelia is up to her old tricks again as she takes what everyone says literally. This time she is helping an elementary-school teacher, Miss Edwards, with a science fair. Everything turns into a disaster as Amelia Bedelia puts too much baking soda in a model volcano, blows her bonnet into the air along with a judge's toupee, and makes a horrendous mess. She does recover by helping Miss Edwards clean up the mess and gave the judge an idea for a new scientific invention that he brought back to the fair to share with Amelia and the students. Like other "Amelia Bedelia" books this one ends with her own donation to the science fair, lemon meringue pies. This is a useful book for inferential thinking and deciphering what is really meant verses how Amelia Bedelia takes it. 2005, Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins Publishers, and Ages 7 to 9.

K-Gr 3-The beloved Amelia Bedelia is back, this time as a helper in the school science fair. Naturally, the literal-minded housekeeper runs into all sorts of misunderstandings, from insisting children are way too young for "makeup" tests, to wondering why Dr. Dinglebatt, the judge, is a mad scientist. Havoc breaks loose when Amelia Bedelia adds too much baking soda to a volcano model, and when the professor's hairpiece falls on a computer, a child screeches, "A rat is attacking the mouse!" As per formula, all ends happily with food and smiles while everyone eats the maid's famous lemon meringue pie. Sweat's familiar watercolor-and-ink illustrations are helpful in understanding the wordplay.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
