Description

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.

From dressing the chicken to drawing the drapes, Amelia Bedelia does exactly what Mr. and Mrs. Rogers tell her to do. If things get a bit mixed up, well, that's okay. When Amelia Bedelia is involved, everything always turns out perfectly in the end!

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

Critical Reviews

"Right on the button for juvenile humor! This book is for that stage in life when the acme of wit is considered to be a questions like this--'How can I sit UP when I'm sitting DOWN?' A perfect blend of text and pictures spiced with humor." -- K.

"The hilarious antics of a housekeeper whose literal interpretations of her list of chores lead to some extremely funny messes." -- School Library Journal

"The new maid, Amelia Bedelia, was so eager to please that she followed her instructions to the letter with the kind of silly results that will make kindergarten children giggle." -- Publishers Weekly

"The younger children for whom this nonsense makes a good read-aloud, and those older who will find it easy to read, will giggle through its series of jokes." -- Horn Book Magazine

"Amelia Bedelia, the new maid, slightly suggests the famous Mary Poppins, but she makes her entry discreetly through the doorway, on her two feet, instead of blowing in on the wind. This is purely a 'silly' book, with no lesson to impart, but it will seem hilarious to young children." -- Saturday Review
