    Recently read this to my daughter, and I almost forgot how much I enjoyed these books as a child.

    Amelia Bedelia -- such a literal character -- always taking every word at face value, never able to read between the lines...and I still find her well-intentioned antics heartwarming and hilarious!

    My daughter seems to agree. Great childhood read!

    Once upon a school day, I think when I was in second grade (so this would have been pre-1980, I believe), we went on our bi-weekly library outing. The librarian had us sit in front of her in the storytime area and whipped this book out. She read it to us.
    That may have been when I realized my love for wordplay.
    I don't think I'd ever laughed so hard in storytime in my life.
    That librarian read us a lot of good books (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Charlotte's Web(that was in third grade and it took several weeks to finish), and others) but this one is the one that stuck with me for years. The sponge cake? Drawing the drapes? And the best part was that I understood Amelia's blunders, I got why it was funny and it warmed this little spot in my brain, in my heart, and in my soul which was not yet blackened and shriveled.
    I have this book on my shelves. I'll pick it up every few years and thumb through it and by the end, I'm grinning so hugely, my cheeks hurt.

    Amelia Bedelia is such an adorable character. She tries so hard to complete her chores. But because she takes everything so literally, she always messes up everything.

    This is her first day at work as a maid for the Rogers family. She did nothing right of what was required from her. In the end she was hired as she made the best dessert.

    Very very funny book.

    These books were included in the nightly read-a-thon my children put me through each night. We loved the giggle fest Amelia Bedelia gave us. She was supposed to dust the furniture so Amelia Bedelia applied dusting powder! 🤣 c’mon that’s funny! (Or maybe I just have childish humor)🤷🏼‍♀️

    This is the fiftieth anniversary edition of Amelia Bedelia. She is a maid who takes the meaning of words literally. A funny book, it is illustrated in black and green illustrations. This edition provides a glimpse at the advertising and professional reviews, and short biographies of the author Peggy Parish and the illustrator Frederick (Fritz) Siegel. This is my first reading of a Amelia Bedelia book. I have read one book written by Ms. Parish's nephew, Herman Parish, entitled Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School, published in 2009. Though I didn't write a review in 2011, I gave it a five star rating too.

    Four stars today, adding a fifth star because of how much I loved this as a child.

    And it's still hard not to like Amelia Bedelia. She is such an adorable, unintentionally funny individual, so earnest. It's hard to really be mad at her for doing what she thought was right, though she makes a mess of things (I'm sure many kids can relate to that!). I always loved her ruffled lacy apron and blue hat with the pink flowers on it. The illustrations fascinated me with all the old-fashioned furniture and clothing. I remember so many of her "chores" so vividly, from drawing the drapes to dressing the turkey. It was so much fun to be "in" on Amelia Bedelia's mistakes--I was a child who always loved words and the wordplay here was such a delight! And I always wanted some of that lemon meringue pie ;-)

    4.5 stars

    I have a confession to make: even though I had read the “Amelia Bedelia” books when I was little, I had never read the very first book in the “Amelia Bedelia” series, which has surprised me since I thought that that would be the first thing that I would have read (but, I was a kid back then and I just read whatever was put in front of me). So, I finally got the chance to read the very first book “Amelia Bedelia” by Peggy Parish along with artwork by Fritz Siebel and I was pleasantly surprised by this introductory book into the popular “Amelia Bedelia” series!

    The story starts off with Amelia Bedelia starting her first day of work at the household of Mr. and Mrs. Rogers and Mrs. Rogers left Amelia Bedelia a list of things she must do around the house while the Rogers are out. Before Amelia Bedelia went to work, she decided to make a lemon meringue pie for the Rogers once they get home and after she finished making the pie, she started going through the chores she has to do around the house. The first task that Amelia had to do is:

    “Change the towels in the green bathroom.”

    Sounds simple enough, except that Amelia thought that Mrs. Rogers had meant changing the designs of the towels and Amelia ended up cutting the towels into odd shapes. Next, Mrs. Rogers asked Amelia to:

    “Dust the furniture.”

    Instead, Amelia Bedelia took some dusting powder from the bathroom and dusted the furniture with it.

    How much more damage will Amelia Bedelia cause in the Rogers’ household?

    Read this book to find out!

    I cannot believe that I waited until just recently to actually check out the very first book that jumpstarted the fantastic “Amelia Bedelia” series! I was quite impressed with how simple yet hilarious this story was and it is clear to see why the “Amelia Bedelia” series remained to be well -loved by children all over the world! Peggy Parish did a great job at writing Amelia Bedelia’s character as Amelia Bedelia remains to be a charming and likable character who usually takes things extremely literally and the fun in the story is seeing Amelia Bedelia do bizarre things with the chores she has to do around the house, such as a simple task of putting out the lights turn into Amelia Bedelia literally putting the lights outside to dry out in the sun. Fritz Siebel’s artwork is simplistic, yet cute at the same time as Amelia Bedelia is always drawn with an innocent look on her face and is always wearing a black dress with a white apron in front, signifying her status as a maid. I also loved the way that Fritz Siebel illustrated Amelia’s escapades in the Roger household, especially the scene where Amelia is dressing up the chicken as they were hilarious to look at. I also like the fact that the colorings are mainly in green and white colors as it makes it truly stand out from other children’s books that usually have black and white colorings in the artwork.


    The reason why I took off half a star from the rating was that I felt that the pacing was a bit slow in some places and I sort of wish that they trimmed down the activities that Amelia Bedelia has done around the house just so the pacing would be faster.

    Overall, “Amelia Bedelia” is a must read if you want to read about how Amelia Bedelia’s adventures began and if you are a huge fan of the “Amelia Bedelia” book series! I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.

    Amelia Bedelia!!
    This book seriously stressed me out as a child. It was funny, but I was concerned about how much she always messed up!

    This is a combined review of mom and daughter. I think as I child I loved this one as much as my daughter. As an adult, a little bit less because of the repetitiveness in the read aloud. I found myself wanting to just say Amelia instead of Amelia Bedelia. However, I still would happily continue reading this to my little one.

    Amelia Bedelia is hilarious fun. She doesn't quite get what is being asked of her on her first day of work. She does everything on a list made by her new employers, but she does it in her own silly way. My daughter is a little young for understanding all the puns, but each time I read it I giggled at parts and told her why it was funny. She gets it now. I explained what it means to draw the drapes vs draw the drapes, etc. Her asking me to read the book 5 times in a short period of time lets me know she really enjoys it.

    I love Amelia as much as when I read my first Amelia Bedelia book. She's quirky, she's hilarious, she's kindhearted, and she's a hard worker. I can't help but wonder when are they going to make an Amelia Bedelia movie?

    This book was reintroduced to me by the Children's Picture Book Club found here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...

    So sweet! I love a good throwback, and this little book definitely spanned a couple of decades to replant me in my childhood, if only for a few minutes. It's fun revisiting an old friend like Amelia Bedelia!
