    Amelia Bedelia is hired as a maid and is left with chores to do around the house. When she reads the list Amelia takes everything literal. This is a great book to use to teach students about idioms . Most students have trouble with understanding the difference between figurative language and literal language. I would recommend this book to students in kindergarten to 4th grade.

    This story is about a cute little maid named Amelia, she is starting her first day of work. She loves to bake so before starting her work she bakes a pie. Then she reads the list her boss has left. When reading this list she takes everything literal, some examples of this would be "put the lights out" so she took the lights outside to dry. In the end her pie saves the day from her angry bosses and they all learned to communicate better. One way I would use this book is a think aloud on story mapping. During the read aloud i would have a chart and fill it in as I read.

    Amelia Bedilia is about the misadventures of a cleaning lady who is hired by a fancy family to clean up the house while they are out. She bumbles through her to-do list misunderstanding everything and ruining quite a few things until she almost gets fired if it weren't for the delicious pie she bakes. The theme is misunderstanding directions that are given due to differences in structure and vocabulary. The story is very silly and funny to kids but also probably represents a lot of their daily activity and feelings about directions being given by the adults in their lives. However, because this book was written a while back some of the misdirections are totally foreign to younger new ears, and when I tried to read it aloud to my class I ended up having to explain the meaning behind many of the words that Amelia did and didn't understand, more so than if they already knew them and just applied them wrong to a situation as Amelia does.

    Genre: FantasyCritique: This is a example of fantacy because the events that take place are not realitic, such as Amelia cutting up nice towels and not getting fired.

    Despite its age, this story is still so wonderful and relevant for today's children. Amelia Bedelia is a hilarious and lovable character and her simple stories introduce language concepts like clichés, metaphors, and the intricacies of English.

    This is the first book in a series featuring the zany housekeeper Amelia Bedelia. Though always well-intentioned, she often takes an unconventional approach to her duties. For example, when it is time to dust, she uses "dusting powder" (i.e. make-up powder) to administer a layer of dust around the house. Early readers will love her silly ideas and sense of humor, and they will be anxious to read Parish's other books about the loveable if misguided Amelia Bedelia!

    I never read Amelia Bedelia as a kid so I thought I would read the first book in the series. I found Amelia Bedelia to be very humorous and entertaining, and fell in love with her instantly. I think that children would enjoy the language used in these books, and it could also be used to teach students about idioms and phrases. I think that overall she is just a very lovable character, and her stories are quite silly.

    I love this series of books, I could write the same thing for each book review. I have always enjoyed these books growing up which is why I did my author study on this series specifically. I love the way Peggy uses humor and word-play throughout each book.

    Amelia Bedelia is a great character with a ditzy attitude that keeps you coming back for more! Amelia seems to always get confused on what she is supposed to do. I love the wacky stuff she comes up with, and I know children would too! Great book series!

    In my opinion, this is a great book for children. First, the plot is highly enjoyable for people of all ages. The fact that Amelia takes everything so literally makes for an engaging story. The suspense of how her bosses will react to all of her outrageous results of the tasks keeps the readers interested. For example, Amelia was asked to dust the furniture and so she took dusting powder and powdered all of the furniture. As I was reading, I was nervous keeping in mind the owners of the house and how they were going to react to a sofa covered in dusting powder. The illustrations were also another aspect of the book that I liked. They were drawn in pencil which gives the pictures a little more detail. There is also a picture that goes along with each task that Amelia misinterprets which gives the readers a glimpse at how literally Amelia took the instructions she was given. The character of Amelia can also be very relatable because a lot of people misinterpret what others are asking of them and so she is a likable character. The main idea of this book is to teach the importance of understanding fully what someone has to say and not to take things too literally because we have phrases that are the same but mean different things.

    Amelia Bedelia takes everything very literal. She arrives at her employer's house eager and willing to work. Unfortunately, she wreaks more havoc around the house than good. Despite her ability to complete the tasks asked of her, she can make a great lemon meringue pie. It is just the thing that saves her and lets all of her mistakes be forgiven.Amelia Bedelia books are fun ways to teach students very simple life lessons. I would use these books for Pre-K to third grade. Amelia Bedelia is quite a character and every story has a good laugh.

    New maid Amelia Bedelia gets into trouble with her new employees when she takes their instructions to clean their house a little too literally. As an early reader, Amelia Bedelia is a bit shorter than other texts, appropriate for beginning readers but still a good segue between picture books and more complex early readers. Amelia is funny and engaging, giving readers the opportunity to laugh over her mistakes through the text and accompanying illustrations.

    Amelia Bedelia is starting her first day of work as a housekeeper for Mrs. Rogers. Mrs. Rogers can't be at the house on her first day, so she leaves Amelia a list. Amelia decides to bake a pie for the family because she is so grateful for the job, and she says she makes good pies. Amelia puts the pie in the oven and starts her chores. First on the list is to change the towels in the green bathroom, but instead of putting new towels, Amelia cuts the old. Instead of dusting the furniture, Amelia covers it with dusting powder. Amelia does all of her chores in the wrong way, and when Mrs. Rogers gets home she is furious. She was about to fire Amelia, but then she tasted her pie. Her pie was so good that she let Amelia stay, but made sure to write the chores in a way Amelia understood. This story shows that everyone comprehends things in different ways. Something may be written in a way that you understand, but someone else may not. Each student could bring in their favorite recipe of what they like to bake and the class could make a cookbook.

    I liked this book because it was funny how Amelia would take each phrase literally. If someone told her to "hit the road" she went outside to hit the road with a stick. This type of book shows kids that it is ok to misunderstand the meaning of a phrase, which is another reason why I liked this book. I think the humor in Amelia Bedelia is appropriate and approachable, I like how kids would easily understand that we do not actually want to "hit" the road, and we want to go somewhere. I did not like the pictures of this book because I felt like they were really outdated. Amelia walks around all day with a bonnet on her head regardless of what she is doing, and this is not a common practice anymore and I think kids would notice. The big idea of this story was not to take things literally, we have many different phrases that can mean more than one thing!

    My daughter read this book and loved it, so I decided to read it too! Really cute and funny book. The book teaches children not to take everything literal!
  • (5/5)
    This is a fun book, no matter how you look at it! But, if you are like I am a very literal person, this book is made for you! The hijinks related to Amelia Bedelia understanding what is meant, as opposed to what is actually stated, yields hilarious results. Although made for young children, the child in all of us will enjoy this story. A very quick and fun read!
  • (5/5)
    This book is good to talk about literal meaning. The children will love all of the crazy offbeat things that Amelia does in the book and the word play.
  • (3/5)
    Amelia is such a literal character, always taking every word at face value, never able to read between the lines... Her well-intentioned antics are heartwarming and hilarious! Young children might not always understand all the puns but I believe this could provide a great opportunity to introduce them to wordplay.

    This realistic fictional book tells the story of Amelia Bedelia experiencing the great outdoors for the first time. Amelia Bedelia is not your typical house maid. She struggles with following directions because she takes everything so literal. When they were heading off to hit the road, she took a stick and actually hit the road. She was told to put the coffee on the fire and she actually poured the coffee into the BBQ. She was told she needed the tent stakes and she took three steaks and put them in shapes of the tent. Although Amelia struggled with many things for the great outdoors, she realized she really does love camping.

    Peggy Parish has created a character that is funny and very literal that children can enjoy while learning. Parish's books illustrate following directions and what they mean int he context given. For example, in this book Amelia is asked to draw the drapes and she sits in a chair and literally draws the drapes on a piece of paper! Excellent book to work with word play and meaning.

    Amelia Bedelia is as classic as books get if you ask me. I can remember vividly reading this book in lower school with friends and always enjoying it. The story itself is about a brand new maid for this couple and all the whacky ways in which she cleans and tidies their house. Throughout out the day, she follows the list of chores for her to do left by the family. However, she does everything as literally as possible and it turns out she did everything all wrong. Her job is saved by an amazing pie that she made for the couple as a present. Very nice stories that will make you laugh, with simple illustrations that make the message of the story clear.

    The Amelia Bedelia books are funny and entertaining books for young children.
  • (5/5)
    The Amelia Bedelia books have always been hilarious to me. The way the Parish finds ways to create wacky situations for her characters because of misunderstandings is amazing. There is one instance where she dresses up the chicken in clothes when she was asked to dress the chicken in preparation for dinner. The homophones usage in this book creates hilarious scenarios and can be enjoyed again and again. I read this book repeatedly as a child. Amelia's boss may get frustrated with her, but he understands that we are all human and make mistakes. The main idea of this book is to teach the importance of understanding fully what someone has to say. Asking for clarifying details may be needed if you are unclear on what someone is asking you to do.

    This is the first book of a series of picture books for children. This story is about a house keeper her takes her chores to the extreme and very literally. The book is very humorous even for adults who are reading it to their children or students. As an adult reading this book you can imagine what you would be feeling if you came home to a house with dust on all the furniture, all the light bulbs hung outside on a clothes line and the towels in the bathrooms being cut with scissors to look different. Of course it made me laugh because I was thinking to myself "hmm how could I have written these instructions that Amelia Bedelia would have gotten the instructions correct?" Overall I think that this is a good read for parents to read to their children and laugh about together. I would suggest that this book is good for children age 10 and under.

    I love Ameila Bedelia! I grew up reading the books in the Amelia Bedelia series and to this day they still make me laugh. Looking back at the books now I still think they are great stories to read to/with students. I love the illustrations in the story. If a student is having difficulty understanding the literal aspect of the book she can use the pictures as visual cues to decipher the text. The book is also a great way to introduce the difference between literal statements. Mrs. Rogers learns to be more specific and write very simple instructions for Amelia (draw the drapes, measure the rice). The students can then use these examples and think of literal/ figurative expressions on their own leaving Amelia instructions them self. Amelia Bedelia has so many teachable moments, great illustrations and is very funny making the story great for readers.

    I loves these books. It always keeps me guessing as to what Amelia could do. She takes things very literal to the point. Some children and people are like that. Maybe not to that extreme. The book is fun and an easy read.

    I hadn't read Amelia Bedelia since I was a girl, but I decided to read the copy I bought for a friend whose granddaughter's name is Amelia. (She's much, much too young for Barbara Michaels' Amelia Peabody series.)The Rogers have hired Amelia Bedelia to be their new housekeeper. Too bad for the Rogers that they have to be away for the day and there's something about Amelia they don't know. Mrs. Rogers made a list of things for Amelia to do. The fun of the story comes from Amelia taking that list very literally and how she tries to fulfill its tasks.I certainly don't blame Mrs. Rogers for her reaction when she finds out. Nor do I blame Mr. Rogers for his reaction. Mine would be the same as his. I don't remember Mr. Siebel's original illustrations well enough to know how the revisions differ, but liked them well enough. I don't think Amelia Bedelia would appeal to children too young to understand Amelia's mistakes. Children who are old enough should enjoy it.

    Amelia Bedelia is a maid who gets a new job at the Rodgers household. Mrs. Rodgers gives Amelia various housekeeping tasks, which Amelia takes literally. For example, Mrs. Rodgers asks Amelia to dust the living room and Amelia takes dusting powder and covers all the furniture with it. Amelia is quite silly and kids really enjoy her antics.

    This is a very easy read about a young girl who is asked to be a maid for some rich family that are headed out of town. It is a funny story that the young girl interprets things in different ways then what the owners meant for her to do. The pictures are pretty good and are in a cartoon type for children to enjoy better.
