Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this "I Can Read, Level 2" adventure the well-meaning but confused and literal Ameila Bedelia is mistaken for a substitute teacher. At school, she follows Miss Lane's list: calls (a) roll, plants (light) bulbs with the children, leads a foot race, and creates a harum-scarum scramble over "take away," in this case, apples they have picked at Mrs. Rogers' house, where she has also made taffy apples. They, of course, save the day when the Rogers arrive home with the new teacher. Children can enjoy the book and the character their parents loved when they were in elementary school. It is all good fun and the reader is surely in on the jokes. 2004 (orig. 1977), Greenwillow, Ages 5 to 8.
—Susan Hepler, Ph.D.

My little one loves these books. She does state though that they get boring becasue they are so repetative. This is definately not educational material.
