Amelia Bedelia was first published in 1963. 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. "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 Supports the Common Core State Standards
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!
