How can you go wrong with an Amelia Bedelia book? This was really fun to read to the kids, and the camping theme adds adventure to Amelia's silly ways.Published 4 months ago by sonia
Amelia Bedelia is such a wonderful character for kids . My grandchildren love her stories. We read one at least everyday. I highly recommend these books.Published 5 months ago by L. K. Whitley
