Not yet rated | write a review

For nearly half a century, Amelia Bedelia has been turning ordinary tasks into extraordinary fun.

Amelia Bedelia draws the drapes with a pencil and sketchpad. She makes sponge cake with a real sponge.

She recruits a train conductor to lead an orchestra. And when she''s driving toward a fork in the road, she''s also on the lookout for a spoon.

You can count on the well-meaning Amelia Bedelia to take things to hilariously literal extremes. But you can also count on her putting her heart and friendship into everything she does-and always having a scrumptious cake or pie ready to share at the end of a long day.

This book includes four of Amelia Bedelia''s most beloved adventures; a CD to listen to while you read; and recipes, games, and more.

About the Author

The late Peggy Parish, well known for her stories about Amelia Bedelia, wrote many popular books for children, including Dinosaur Time , illustrated by Arnold Lobel. "I hate reading but your books are changing my opinion." This letter, from a young Peggy Parish fan, comes as no surprise to the teachers and librarians who have put her books in the hands of children over the years.

Her first book, published in 1961, was followed with Let's Be Indians and in 1963 with her unforgettable Amelia Bedelia. Always involved with education in some way, Peggy Parish did television pieces on preschool education and children's books, wrote children's-book review columns, and led numerous in-service training workshops for teachers.
