Large type, simple vocabulary, chapter-like divisions, and decorative pictures made Little Bear perfect for emerging readers � they could read the story comfortably and not feel overwhelmed by the text. Following suit came such classics as Peggy Parish's Amelia Bedelia series, Lillian Hoban's books about Arthur the monkey, and Syd Hoff's popular "Danny and the Dinosaur." Many books in this series are special in the depth of emotion evoked � "Little Bear, the Frog and Toad" books by Arnold Lobel, and "Daniel

Siebel, Fritz. As New in As New jacket. Amelia Bedelia-a Hallmark Book-An I Can Read Picture Book. Hardback story/picture book is quite clean and in new condition with like dust jacket in a Brodart protector-very nice looking book. NOT AN EX-LIB!
I have read Amelia Bedelia to students for years. It delights the kids and makes them laugh. They often ask for more. To all parents, just try one book you will buy more. My kudos to Peggy parish the author.

Highly recommended series
Amelia Bedelia is a scatter-brained housekeeper who takes every instruction just a bit too literally. The books capture the imagination of children and are wonderful for pre-schoolers and early readers. Every Amelia Bedelia story has Amelia so confused while she is trying to help that you just have to laugh.... They are rated for first through third grade readers but will be enjoyed by everyon

Gotta love her!
Amelia Bedelia borders on corny, but somehow still manages to intrigue. Kids will love hearing about each chore that she misunderstands and mismanages by taking words a little too literally. It's also a cute way to point out how the English language is filled with phrases that don't always mean what they ought to! Lots of fun for early readers!
