Amelia, the science-loving, artistic, and independent 5th grader takes us into her personal journal- allowing us into the inner-workings of a ten-year old's brain.

Imbedded in the hilarious stories Amelia tells is a story of bullying. Read to find out how Amelia deals with another student who is far from nice to her. This tex...more
Here is another great Amelia book that students can use to inspire their journals off of. Students can make their own journals and put anything they want in it such as stickers, stamps, wrapping paper etc to make it their own personal journal.

Hell, I know this makes me a six year old, but I can't hold it in: I LOVED how she FINALLY did a man-up in the end and actually stood up for herself.
I have always loved these books. I grew up on them. And last night I found them in my closet and had to read them again. :)
This was one of my favorite Amelia books. She goes to this really cool NASA summer camp.

Who is Marissa Moss anyway?

I’ve been making children’s books for a looooong time. I sent my first picture book to publishers when I was nine, but it wasn’t very good and they didn’t publish it. I didn’t try again until I was a grown-up and then it took five years of sending out stories, getting them rejected, revising them and sending them back over and over until I got my first book. Now I’ve pub...more
