For as long as I can remember I have absolutely loved these books. They have had me laughing and laughing and...well, laughing some more. Amelia Bedelia is a maid who takes EVERYTHING literally (bless her heart), so, sometimes things go a little haywire. Not to worry though, because everything always works out for Amelia Bedelia. She and I, we are kindred spirits. In fact, we are probably twins that were separated at birth. I mean, talk about a relatable story (for me anyways...)! In all seriousness, these are fantastic books. I promise you, you will not want to put them down.
Use in the classroom: I would use the "World of Amelia Bedelia" website to find some really awesome activities. On the website, there is a fun activity to help teach homophones and homonyms that I would use. I would also use these books for some fun journal or creative writing activities.
Target grade: 2nd
