Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping
"Hurry up, Amelia Bedelia," called Mr. Rogers.

"I'm coming, I'm coming," said Amelia Bedelia.

"Did we get everything?" asked Mrs. Rogers.

"I would say so," said Amelia Bedelia.

"Good," said Mr. Rogers.

"It's time to hit the road."

"Hit the road?" asked Amelia Bedelia.

"All right." She picked up a stick.

And Amelia Bedelia hit the road.

"Stop that!" shouted Mr. Rogers.

"Get into the car."

Amelia Bedelia got into the car.

"I'm so excited," she said.

"I've never been camping."

"You will have fun," said Mrs. Rogers.

They rode for a long time.

Finally Mr. Rogers stopped the car.

"Wake up, Amelia Bedelia," said Mrs. Rogers. "This is it."

Amelia Bedelia looked all around.

"But where is the camp?" she asked.

"The camp is in the car," said Mr. Rogers.

"In the car!" said Amelia Bedelia.

I remember loving these stories as a child, and was excited to see my own children's reaction to the crazy world of Amelia! To my surprise, not only did my 6-year old seem very entertained, but so did my 3 year old! Some of the writing is a little old fashioned, but overall, it's a fun read and worth a try with children of all ages.

Amelia Bedelia goes camping with Mrs. and Mr. Rogers. She takes going camping to a whole new literal sense.

Amelia Bedelia books were always my favorite as a child, and I still get a good laugh out of them as an adult. This one is about her camping trips and all the silly mistakes she makes with Mr. and Mrs. Rogers. I love how she takes everything so literal.

Amelia Bedilia is a maid who always takes instructions literally. While meant for beginning readers, students need a pretty good command of and flexibility with English to get the jokes in the book. In her camping trip with Mr. and Mrs. Rogers she puts potato chips in the chocolate chip cookies, catches fish with her bare hands, and throws the tent to pitch it. As always, this book ends with Amelia's silly mistakes ending OK and everyone having a good time.

Great book for beginning readers thanks to awesome humor and easy reading. Being the rather all-over-the-place housekeeper that she is, Amelia takes camping to a new level by mixing up what she is supposed to do with the literal meaning of the instructions she has been given. Beginning readers will gobble this whole series up and learn to read more fluently when encountering dialogue. This would also be a fun book to read out loud in class with several kids taking turns.

A funny, cute Amelia Bedelia book where she goes camping and, as usual, gets into a lot of strange predicaments.

Amelia takes all the cliche¿s she hears seriously: her chocolate chip cookies are chocolate cookies with potato chips in them! You can imagine how this plays out while camping. The campout would have been a blowout if not for the fact that she made a lovely birthday picnic for Mr. and Mrs. Rogers.

This book in the series finds Amelia Bedelia and her employers going camping...as always Amelia's literal minded approach means lots of misunderstanding between what the Rodger's tell her to do and what Amelia does. As always, Amelia Bedelia does EXACTLY as she is told (let's hit the road leaves Amelia hitting the road with a stick and I think we can all guess what happens when it's time to pitch the tent)!! In the end, its Amelia's big heart (and extraordinary cooking ability) that saves the day (as usual) when the Rodger's get fed up with all the misunderstandings!! Young readers will love to hear this story read out loud, but it's also a find book for readers just starting out! Amelia, I think, will be around for generations to come, the stories are simple, but hilarious and the illustrations are just darling! Always a good way to get a discussion going about how we use words and how a word or phrase can have several meanings...plus it's just plain fun!

As someone who grew up camping, I have always loved this funny look at camping terms with the literal maid.

My favorite person in this book was Amelia Bedelia, because she is funny. I liked the part of the book when Amelia jumps in a lake and catches a fish, but lets it go. Then Mr. Rogers got very mad. Then he gets happier at the end.
