learning to camp out in the wilderness with Amelia, becomes a adventure.

Amelia Bedelia goes camping is another crazy Amelia adventure. She takes everything too literally, and nothing really clicks in her head right away. She did not understand that they had to build the camp site, she thought they were sleeping in the car. My favorite part of this book is when they're eating cookies and she said she made up a new kind- chocolate- but she put the cookies and potato chips in one bag and called them "chocolate chip cookies". I think this book is a great way to make children think about actual terms and words. When you're young it doesn't click right away that a chocolate chip cookie is a cook with pieces of chocolate in it. ( )

Amelias character is one that takes things so literal. It reminds me of how literal children can be, and how literal I was as a child. To me the importance of showing children such a humorous book they can relate to is very meaningful. Sometimes children need someone to relate to and I think they can definately relate to Amelia. I love when Mr. Roges says "let's hit the road." and she literally grabs a stick and hits the road with it. ( )

This is an Amelia Bedelia book about camping. This would be a good book for a beginning reader and I think it can help children think about the way certain phrases are worded. ( )

Camp Out

Amelia Bedelia has never been camping in the great outdoors before. She's trying her best to do exactly as she's told, but pitching a tent is not the same as throwing it into the bushes, and catching a fish with your bare hands isn't easy. As usual, the mixed-up housekeeper makes this camping trip one hugely entertaining adventure.

(see all 4 descriptions)

As always, Amelia Bedelia follows exactly the instructions given to her on a camping trip, including pitching a tent and rowing boats.
