I have always loved reading the Amelia Bedelia series as I was growing up, it has been my favorite! Amelia Bedelia has become a big hero and influence to many people in this story as she runs for mayor. At first Amelia is baking and frosting cakes and next thing you know she is running for mayor. She gets so much positive comments as other people in her community are with her all the way. In this election Amelia is very humorous and does her best to get the people's votes. This is a very good po ...more
I remember that I loved reading Amelia Badelia books when I was younger, and I realized that I still do! This book story acknowledges Amelia's precise obedience in everything she does and so they all encourage her to be a mayor, and in turn she teaches the Mayor how to keep his promises. This book can be used in class to teach how one person can influence a person in power.

Amelia Bedelia takes everything so literally. This leads to Amelia running for Mayor. This book is an entertaining book for kids.

This is my favorite Amelia Bedelia adventure. Mr. Rogers is complaining that the mayor doesn't do what he says he'll do. Then Amelia Bedelia, who always does exactly what she says she will, comes in with two chocolate cakes in frying pans. Soon, Amelia Bedelia is running for the mayor's office. The usually wordplay is combined with some tongue-in-cheek jabs at our political system, and could raise some real questions about what we really expect from politics.

This is my first Amelia Bedelia book. My wife told me that she enjoys the character, but didn't like this particular book that much.

Apparently Amelia Bedelia takes everything literally, and then nonsense ensues.

I could see this book having the ability to teach kids about different phrases and metaphors.

These Amelia Bedelia books are very funny. She's a maid who takes everything literally and it always leads to mischief and hilarious situations. In this book she runs for mayor because she always does exactly what she is told. It leads to funny situations.
Melissa McLees
Amelia does what she says she will do, and does what others tell her to do in her own way. At least she sticks by her word. She also helped the mayor realise a lesson to. Lesson I learned is becareful what you say. and do what you say you will do.

OH NO! MORE KASOS! Amelia does a lot of crazy stuff happens in this book. The book was great and really funny.
Amelia Bedelia runs for mayor, literally. Amelia Bedelia's confusion over phrases causes her trouble yet again, from "casting" votes to sitting "on the fence". One thing is for sure, if Amelia Bedelia is involved there's going to be trouble.

Amelia Bedelia's stories are classic and fun. Our girls enjoy them, laughing at how literally Amelia takes everything. In this story, Amelia ventures into politics, and I'm sure she'd be as good of a public servant as any we have, if not much, much better. This book came with an audio cassette and our girls enjoyed listening to it a few times.
Amelia Bedelia books are for children who have some understanding of the jokes. Fifth graders may enjoy reading this fun and silly book.This one about Amelia 4 Mayor can teach politics and new word meanings. Voters sitting on the fence is an example of an undecided voter but Amelia was thinking people were sitting on a real fence.
I had never read an Amelia Bedelia book I had just heard about them. But as I picked this book up it only took me about an hour to read it. It is a very short book and hilarous. I believe children would love to read this book to find out what silly thing Amelia Bedelia is going to say next.

Amelia Bedelia once again misunderstands what Mr. and Mrs. Rogers are talking about and inadvertently runs for town mayor. She also inadvertently bows out of the race by stories end.
I still Amelia Bedelia. It's my kind of Humor! In this you have that classic Amelia humor combined with my favorite subject politics! How can you lose?
Should be required reading for all current and aspiring politicians. Amelia Bedelia does what she is told and knows how to keep a promise. Amen.
Amelia Bedelia definitely knows how to keep a promise and make a difference! =)
I think Amelia is a good person for mayor.
Cute story!!Loved it.
