Who doesn’t love Amelia Bedelia? This fast reading chapter book follows her adventures as a child. She discovers that you don’t need to travel far to discover new things and new places. She’s joined by two friends as they find a place for their new clubhouse. Other friends, from other books, make appearances. Real life problems show up such as leaky roofs and trash covered empty lots but solutions also show up making this story flow smoothly. Sketches are on every page illustrating all of the action. And, as everyone knows, Amelia Bedelia takes everything as it’s said which makes some phrases sound strange. All of the phrases are in the back of the book along with what they actually mean. What a cool addition. I can easily see elementary school age children thoroughly enjoying this book and how it could quickly become a favorite.
