Children's LiteratureAmelia 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.
