Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Some readers may already be familiar with Amelia Bedelia, the Rogers' maid. But what was Amelia Bedelia like as a young girl? Read this funny story about young Amelia Bedelia as she visits her grandparents. Her grandmother is going to teach her how to make an apple pie. Find out who or rather what Granny Smith is when Amelia wonders how Granny Smith will help with the baking project. Amelia's literal perspective will have readers laughing and giggling. Even as a young girl, Amelia helps to save a crisis with her culinary creation. There are illustrations throughout the book. At the back of the book is an apple pie recipe. The author of this book is the nephew of Peggy Parish, Amelia Bedelia's creator. Enjoy the other books in the "Amelia Bedelia Picture Book" series and chuckle at her antics when she was a young girl. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—This third book featuring the young and modernized Amelia is more of a traditional picture book than an easy reader, and the oversize format allows for plenty of space for the many activities that take place. Pictures in fall colors are in various sizes, from full page to several smaller illustrations per page, featuring apples, pumpkins, and autumn-hued leaves. Here, Amelia is visiting her grandparents and making a pie with Grandma. She's still up to her typical antics, mistaking Granny Smith for a person and thinking that a farmer's market is a place to buy farmers. Children will find the humor relevant and funny. The illustrations flow well with the text; the words are placed in a manner that creates movement, guiding the eye from picture to picture. This is a great book to use for a fall unit or storyhour. The apple pie recipe is included at the end.—Lora Van Marel, Orland Park Public Library, IL

We borrowed this from the library and it was an instant fave. My almost 4 yr old daughter loves it & has added it to her xmas list (Santa already has it hidden in the closet). It's well written, although some things I had to explain to her at her age, but she understood once we talked about it & she wants to borrow it all the time now. It's a nice simple story that reminds me of making pies & other things with my grandmother. :)
