Learn to read with the classic Amelia Bedelia!

Ever since Amelia Bedelia made her debut in 1963, young readers have been laughing out loud at the antics of this literal-minded but charming housekeeper.

Fun-loving Amelia Bedelia is in charge of a surprise wedding shower. And when she arrives with a garden hose, the entire party is turned into an uproarious mess! This Level 2 I Can Read is perfect for kids who read on their own but still need a little help.

"No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language—and no adult can fail to notice that she's usually right when she's wrong."—The New York Times Book Review

I love Amelia Bedelia. She is such a funny character! The Amelia Bedelia stories are great books for children beginning to read. I like to read them aloud to students. It is fun to hear their reactions to Amelia Bedelia's misinterpretations and the illustrations are entertaining too.

It was very funny. I like when Amelia showered Mrs. Rogers with the hose. I liked at the end when the kids held Mr. Rogers' friend down and showered him with the water.

Amelia Bedelia is in charge of a wedding shower, and you can imagine her interpretation thereof. Luckily, everyone is laughing at Amelia and her cousin, Alcolu (in their bathing suits) by the end- even the wet bride-to-be!

Amelia Bedelia is always a simple, fun and entertaining read! In this volume, we find Amelia and her cousin in charge of setting up a surprise wedding shower for a friend of her employer Mrs. Rogers. In typical Amelia Bedelia fashion, the literal meaning of the requests and orders given and the intended meaning are two different things's always fun to watch kids register that the words in the story really do mean two different things (like filling a bowl with cut flowers...simple, yet taken literally, you get something entirely different from it...this is the joy of Parish's writing). Parish always does it with just the right amount of frivolity and light-hearted humor that it's impossible not to love Amelia Bedelia despite all the trouble she causes! I love the Amelia Bedelia series as a read aloud because it's so much fun, but the Amelia Bedelia series is also ideal for young readers, especially those just starting to read on their own! There are not a lot of words on each page, but what is there is easy to understand and conveyed succinctly and with humor and the illustrations are perfectly matched to the text (with a slightly old fashioned feel to them). You just can't go wrong with these books!
