Missing Half The Book

I got this for homeschooling and we just came to the unit that this goes with. It’s missing over half of the pages from the back of the book.

Completely damaged

The book itself is lovely. Very disappointed it arrived more damaged then I thought and without the CD

My granddaughter and I enjoyed this book so much I am trying to buy all of the Anna Bedelia book ser

It was absolutely so funny. How Amelia could mix up instructions so easily. My granddaughter and I will look forward to finish all the books in the Amelia's bedelia's series


I read this series as a child. Always a classic. Perfect for young readers and keeps adults entertained while reading them to children.

One of our favorite books!

Amelia Bedelia is hilarious. It really makes you think how to say things and the pictures are really cute.

Getting the Joke

It is important to "get the joke". Amelia Bedelia is a great way to begin to understand the play on words. Amy

Great travel CD

I purchased a couple of different Books on CD for a long trip. Amelia Bedelia was one of the funniest. My 7 yr old son enjoyed it alot. I will also be able to either give them to the schools now for there use or keep them and borrow them out. I haven't quite yet decided. Whatever I do they will be enjoyed for years to come.


Amelia is an idiot. She reads things or hears figures of speech and takes everything so literally that she ends up making a fool of her self. In result you learn nothing but you just learn to laugh and learn not to be like Amelia. Reading a book and laughing sometimes is all you need, so enjoy this book!

An "I Can Read" CLASSIC

Without a doubt, the Amelia Bedelia books stand tall as good literature in the "I Can Read" genre -- a genre notorious for less-than-interesting stories, owing to the fact that it is subject to limited vocabulary lists. Peggy Parish uses these limitations to her benefit, however, creating a whimsical character in Amelia Bedelia, a woman who takes everything literally (for example, a request to prune the hedges causes Amelia to stick prunes on the hedges, and when asked to draw the drapes in the living room, Amelia scrambles for her pencil and notepad to sketch them).Amelia Bedelia's peculiarities make for a memorable story -- one that kids will read over and over, and one that parents won't mind sitting in on. This book is highly recommended. (Okay, okay, I loved it when I was a kid!)And hey, be sure to catch all the other Amelia Bedelia books as well.

Really helped encourage my daughter

My daughter was having some trouble coming up to speed on her reading skills, and this book was really helpful to her.I tend to like the I Can Read Books, anyway, but this one in particular helped my daughter, because she was so fond of the story itself.Amelia Bedelia is loveable and absurd. Kids can really relate to the humor -- Amelia Bedelia finds herself in trouble over misunderstanding the dual meanings of words.This is a good illustration of what not understanding the full meaning of a word can do to a person (and all the trouble that it can create) and it's something that every child has come across at some point or another.It is ridiculous and funny, and what kid doesn't like ridiculous and funny? This is a good one, particularly for girls, I think, since the Amelia is female, and there don't seem to be as many books out there starring women or girls as there should be.
