Overview

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.

The doctor is out! But Amelia Bedelia is ready to help a crowd of grouchy patients. Along the way she doses out some of the best medicine of all — laughter, of course!

"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

Amelia Bedelia goes to Dr. Horton for her doctors appointment. When she arrives the office is packed and the nurse asked Amelia if she would mind helping her. Amelia Bedelia agrees to help out, she answers the phones, takes temp. and puts patients in an examination room. Amelia upsets everyone that calls Dr. Hortons office, so they all come to the office to see what the problem is. When Mrs. Horton arrives she can not believe the mess Amelia Bedelia has caused. Amelia buys ice cream for the whole office and everyone forgives her.

Amelia Bedelia gives hilarious insight into many double entendres that are used in our society. This book is incredibly entertaining and can be used to start conversations about word usage and different meanings for words and phrases. Amelia Bedelia books are great even just to have on hand in a classroom or at home for children. I remember reading them or having them read to me when I was young, and they had a lot to do with the development of my own love for reading.

My children and I discovered Amelia Bedelia in the 80's and loved her. I now introduce Amelia to my nieces and nephew and look forward to introducing Amelia to my grandchildren one day.
