Love this book!! Its so silly and i love the illustrations. Amelia is always doing things wrong and taking it literal. ( )

This is a perfectly funny book for young readers, but might also call for some explanation on a teachers part depending on the age group. Amelia Bedelia does it again by confusing everything on the Christmas list of things to do. This book is so funny, and once students fall in love with her character they often want to read more of her books. ( )

Merry Christmas, Amelia Bedelia is a long story about a day in the life of Amelia Bedelia. She is a maid at the Rogers’ home, and she has a very long list of things to accomplish by the time they come home with Aunt Myra. Amelia takes things very literally; for instance, she thinks that a date cake is made out of the calendar dates, and not the fruit dates. She didn’t know how to stuff a Christmas stocking, so she made Thanksgiving stuffing and put it into clean socks. She had a rough go of it that day, but Aunt Myra enjoyed the things she did to welcome her home. The illustrations in this story are simple and get the point across in few pictures. There are a lot of words, but it doesn’t take much to finish the story with ease. The story is kind of hysterical, and children can laugh at her mishaps. She is quite the character, and the author did a good job of portraying her thoughts, so the audience knows what Amelia Bedelia is thinking when she completes the list that Mrs. Rogers wrote for her.

Amelia Bedelia is loved by all children, including me. In this book, she ends up placing dates from a calendar into a "date" cake, putting a mirror on top of the Christmas tree so that everyone could be a star when they looked into the mirror, and stuffing stockings with stuffing meant for a turkey. This book catches and holds the attention of all readers because they cannot wait to see what silly mistake Amelia Bedelia will make next. The pictures also help break up the long sections of text and add to the hilarity of reading the book. The main message of the book is that mistakes are okay and sometimes they work better than what the original product was supposed to be. ( )

Amelia Bedelia is helping Ms. Rogers prepare for Christmas. But everything she does she does incorrectly. For example, Ms. Rogers want her to make a dates cake, so Amelia starts cutting up a calendar to put dates in the cake while she bakes it. This is a very funny story everyone will enjoy. All the kids will be laughing while they read it. ( )
