Synopsis : If you think Amelia Bedelia is a funny bird, wait until you meet her family.
Review : As a young reader I vividly remember reading "Good Work, Amelia Bedelia". I recall laughing at the misinterpretation of "Draw the drapes". And was fascinated and a little intimidated that this new English language I'd been learning for 6 or so years was able to morph into alternative meanings. Amelia Bedelia introduced me to puns and clever turns of phrase of which my sense of humor hasn't rightly r

In this book of the Amelia Bedelia series by Peggy Parish, readers are introduced to Amelia's family. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers wanted to throw Amelia Bedelia a party and meet her family. She pulled out her family album and proceeded to tell the Rogers about each of her family members. She described what each of her family members did for a living in a humorous way. The jobs seem quite normal, but our interpretations of the jobs seem quite different from Amelia Bedelia's! Her father is a telephone ope ...more

What a funny, comical and tricky book! The front cover leads you into what to expect to the story, chaos. Amelia Bedelia is sitting on the floor making a scrapbook of some kind with glue and pictures everywhere. The illustrations look like they are done with a colored pencil and are simple and colorful. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, Amelia's employers, decide it is time to meet Amelia's family and wants to throw a party for them. So Amelia pulls out her family album and goes through each family member an ...more

Once you've read Amelia Bedelia you will giggle and laugh with your child through all her stories! I read them as a child and now am re-enjoying them with my granddaughter!

In this story the Rogers family that Amelia Bedelia works for wants to give her a party since she's been so good and loyal to them. So AB gets her family album out and discusses her family with the Rogers and like Amelia Bedelia they are all "a little different' than typical.

Gotta love Amelia Bedelia!

Peggy Parish's Amelia Bedelia books are comical and creative. Students will get a kick out of Amelia's unusual way of looking at things. In this particular story, Amelia introduces her family to Mr. and Mrs. Rogers through her family album. They soon learn that this is an interesting family indeed with lots of quirks and unexpected qualities.
The illustrations are classic and simple and really fit the tone of the stories. This is a wonderful easy-to-read book because it is simple enough for begi

This is a great book to teach figures of speech and other types of language. I thought this was a fun book to read, but young children might not get the play on words unless explained. I think it is a good teacher resource book for idioms and other sayings.

If you thought Amelia was ditsy, you should see her family! Another funny addition to the stories of Amelia Bedelia! You go, girl!

A fun little book telling about Amelia's family members, who have occupations that are a little different than they sound!

Amelia takes us on a guided tour of her photograph album, and it is puns all the way down.

This book was pretty good. She introduces her entire family and what they do for a living. Students would probably ne able to identify with her family and if not we could talk about the differences between families. We could also talk about the different careers her family members have.

This is a funny book about Amelia Bedelia's family. We haven't read any other stories about her, but the book is all about puns and double meaning of words. I understood the humor, but I think it went over our girls' heads. Perhaps this is more for older children...
Carol Hardesty
This has always been my favorite Amelia Bedelia book and the only one I ever really owned. I just loved hearing about the zany Bedelia family and their very literal occupations. A must-read for any Amelia Bedelia fan.

I read these books when I was a child, and still have memories of the stupid tales that make me smile. These books are great if you have a child in the family--even more so if you are a child at heart.

As a read-aloud, children would enjoy what Amelia's family members really do for a living. For example, her mother is a loafer. She bakes loaves of bread.

Almost as funny as "her Wacky World," we meet AB's mixed-up family. The acorn does not fall far from the tree. Truly , a funny little book.

It is so nice of The Rodgers to have a party for Amelia and her family. They are quite a crew! Her cousin Edward literally races horses.
Amelia Bedilia had a very many family members. This book made me laugh because the family members have weird and crazy jobs.
We usually love Amelia Bedelia but this one was lacking a good storyline and just had Amelia listing her family members.
As always, Amelia Bedelia brings a smile to a face and a laugh emerges from my throat. Her family is so whacky! =D
