Amelia Bedelia is a kind and friendly housekeeper who takes almost everything literally. In this book, Amelia is going camping with Mr. Rogers and his wife. During the camping trip Amelia takes everything Mr. Rogers says very literally, which causes quite a lot of confusion, but they still have a fun trip filled with fishing and picnicking. This is an easy and fun read for young children. Amelia Bedlia is a funny and lovable character, it is fun to read about her mix ups and mistakes. ( )

Summary: In this children's story, Amelia Bedelia is a maid/cook for the Rogers family. Amelia has a reputation of taking phrases or idioms literally. In this adventure, Amelia and the family go camping. So in the story when she is supposed to pitch a tent she actually throws it into bushes instead of catching it. Amelia does everything wrong on the trip and makes the Rogers very unhappy. At the end, she makes it up to them by cooking a huge feast-cooking is what she does best! This is a classic series that will make children laugh from Amelia's silly behavior.

Argument: I have always loved the Amelia Bedelia books because they never fail to make me laugh. This one is no exception. I believe this book is a great read for children. It really helps children understand the meaning of idioms. Amelia Bedelia takes all of the idioms literally and in turn messes everything up. For example, on page 6, it says " "Hit the road?" asked Amelia Bedelia. All right. She picked up a stick and Amelia Bedelia started hitting the road." I also think this is a good read for children because it involves the topic of camping. I think this is a topic that children will not only enjoy reading about but something that they may have experienced with their families. They may have experienced the same things as Amelia Bedelia.
This story also has many themes and messages. I think the main one is too not take things too seriously and that it is okay to make mistakes. Even though Amelia misunderstood all the directions she was not a bad person. I also think the big idea is for children to understand the concept of idioms. ( )

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. ( )

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.
