Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

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.

This special fiftieth anniversary edition of the very first book restores the original text, page design, jacket, and palette of the original volume. What else is the same? Well, the dressed chicken, dusted furniture, and that delicious lemon meringue pie, among other things. An additional eight pages of behind-the-scenes sketches, photographs, and information about the beginnings of this iconic character, the author, the artist, and Amelia Bedelia's exploits throughout the years is included.

This Level 2 I Can Read is perfect for kids who read on their own but still need a little help. Whether shared at home or in a classroom, the engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play of Level Two books are proven to help kids take their next steps toward reading success.

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

   Good book for your emerging reader as far as simple ...
Good book for your emerging reader as far as to sound out words or figure out how to make sense of the world around them. The jokes are based on the play on words Draw the curtains and she draws a picture of the curtains. We never say we draw the curtains in our house, or many of the other dated phrases. The husband on the first page is also smoking a pipe in the car, which I found to be dated as well.
   Great read for the children!!!
I've never heard of Amelia Bedelia, but she's a great writer. I bought a ton of books for my son and this was one of them, and we both enjoyed it very much! Just watching him read it made me cry, Sandra. This book was pretty hilarious and silly and made reading enjoyable and fun for the kids, too. He actually read it twice because he loved it so much, he said. I purchased the whole set of Amelia Bedelia when she was younger and going to purchase as many as I can find when she's all grown up.
   Literally, Fun and Witty
For all the fun high jinks that Badelia was getting herself into, she always manages to make amends and friends by the end of the book. These are great books for young and old alike, as they are well-written with enough whit and entertainment to make reading fun for all ages, said Gammerman.
   This item made for a nice gift for my 8 year old grand daughter

   Sweet Childhood Humor

   I liked it
This book was on time and the story liked my children who were exited and wanted to read it more than once. I like the seller too, for his excellent merchandise, said Ragin.
   Childhood memories
Think I'll use it when I'm reading to my great nieces and nephews. A good add-on to laughable reading and storytelling.
   Amelia love fun
Hey Classic I love Millie but there's a great book to read any of your children were learning how to read they'll enjoy reading it as much as you do brings back good childhood memories.
   Missing Pages!
I was so excited to share this book with my son as it was one of his favorites growing up. The writer of the story laments that the first six pages are missing. It appears as though this has happened to others who purchased this book as well, but I was hoping with all of the positive reviews that they would have gotten the issue resolved. Amazon also sent me another copy of the book, which is missing the first six pages of the story. It's just that we can't win.
   Great Books
It's no wonder Amelia Bedelia was so excited when asked to dress the chicken. Great for teaching idioms to young children and adults learning English as a foreign language. The humor is always gentle and Amelia is always doing her best, Beckham said. This book is highly recommended, both to children and emerging readers.
