From dressing the chicken to drawing the drapes, Amelia Bedelia does exactly what Mr. and Mrs. Rogers tell her to perform. If things get a bit mixed up, well, that's okay. When Amelia Bedelia is involved, everything always turns out perfectly in the end!
Amelia Bedelia is a housekeeper who takes her instructions really literally. Young readers will find this bumblingly charming, eager-to-please housekeeper as irresistible as Amelia Bedelia's employers do."How odd, Amelia thinks to herself. But older children know better, and they love the fact that they know better. It's an early reader book, so children in primary grades can take satisfaction in reading the book on their really personal. Reading the list of chores that her employer has left her, Amelia begins with"Dust the furniture. Next she is asked to"Draw the drapes when the sun comes in."Nonetheless, she dutifully locates the"Dusting Powder"within the bathroom, and proceeds to sprinkle it all more than the living-room furniture and floor. (Ages 6 and older) --Gail Hudson"At my home we undust the furniture. Children love reading with regards to the antics of silly Amelia Bedelia for myriad reasons. But, much more thrilling, children who are 6 and older can effectively interpret the figurative meaning behind most adult idioms. Being told to"preserve an eye on the cat,"for example, might compel some preschoolers to stick their eyeballs on a cat's face, eliciting peals of laughter from know-it-all grownups."So of course, Amelia sits down getting a sketchpad and provides it her best shot.
