The new maid for Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, Amelia Bedelia, was so eager to please that she followed her instructions to the letter with the kind of silly results that will make young children giggle every time. This book follows a good pattern so children will easily pick up on what to expect from Amelia Bedelia next. This is an excellent book for those students tip-toeing into independent reading, the text is still rather simple and the illustrations make the book more fun to read independently and to get a good laugh.

Amelia Bedelia is a lovable, silly children’s story for beginning readers. I love it because of its humour and amusing story line. The comic relief caused by Amelia Bedlia’s character’s honest mistakes make the story so enjoyable, especially to a younger audience. An example of this is when Amelia is told to separate eggs; instead of cracking the eggs and separating the yolks from the whites, she sits the eggs apart from one another in different locations in the kitchen. Another aspect of this book I liked was the language used. The author uses simple diction and sentence structure which makes this book ideal for emerging readers. For example, the author says “Amelia Bedelia opened the package. She unfolded each shirt.” This simple subject + verb sentence structure is continuous through the book as well as simplistic diction. The main message of the story is to not take everything literally, like Amelia Bedelia did. ( )

Amelia Bedelia is a classic children’s story. In “Thank You, Amelia Bedelia” Amelia, the maid, is given instructions by the woman who she works for. Amelia takes all the instructions too literal which results in humorous outcomes. Overall, the book is a fantastic read, especially for beginner readers. The first reason for why I enjoyed this book was because of the amusing story line. When a story line is constructed to include comic relief, it is more likely to be well received by a younger audience. For instance, at one point Amelia is told to separate eggs; instead of cracking the eggs and separating the yolks from the whites, she sits the eggs apart from one another in different locations in the kitchen. Another aspect of this book that I saw as beneficial was the language used. The author uses simple diction and sentence structure which makes this book ideal for emerging readers. For example, the author says “Amelia Bedelia opened the package. She unfolded each shirt.” This simple subject + verb sentence structure is continuous through the book as well as the simple diction. The big idea of the story also captures the simplicity aspect- it is that not everything is meant to be taken literally. ( )
