Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–Starring an updated but still literal-minded childhood version of the beloved character, this easy reader describes a nature excursion during which Amelia Bedelia follows her teacher's instructions to the letter, embarking on a fun- and pun-filled adventure. The protagonist's upbeat perseverance is just as sunny as the buoyant cartoon artwork. α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Review

“No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language—and no adult can fail to notice that she’s usually right when she’s wrong.” (New York Times Book Review)

Praise for the young Amelia Bedelia series:“Parish has turned the clock back, making Amelia Bedelia young again and giving a new generation of readers the opportunity to enjoy her humor and self-confidence.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Her ingenuous spirit will continue to capture hearts.” (Publishers Weekly)

I'm finding that I truly love Young Amelia Bedelia and this early reader is an example of why I do. Amelia Bedelia and her class are off on a nature walk learning and gathering. From literally hitting the trail to each "leaf leaving" the tree it is fun and fascinating. So much to learn along with Amelia Bedelia.

Amelia Bedelia books have been classics for a long time. This new series of books show us what Amelia was like as a child. She is still taking things literally and it can be quite funny! In this installment she learns about nature. It's a beginning readers so young children will be able to read the story by themselves or with very little help. Fans of the original series will enjoy this set of books as well.

Hiking with Amelia Bedelia is fun to read for early readers. It is also full of things one might find along a hiking trail-- animals, snails, flowers, and leaves. There is also a caterpillar that eventually becomes a butterfly. Great combination of reading and science for young ones!

My granddaughter loves the Amelia Bedelia series because it brings out the silliness in everyone. It's fun to read to the kids, but it's also easy enough that a beginning reader can do a pretty good job on his or her own.

Great beginning reader. My daughter loves Amelia Bedelia and enjoys these books because she can read them herself (with a little help from Mom!).

More About the Author

Herman Parish was in the fourth grade when his aunt, Peggy Parish, wrote the first book about Amelia Bedelia. The lovable, literal-minded housekeeper has been a member of his family ever since. Peggy Parish died in 1988. She would be proud and delighted to know that with Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia; Bravo, Amelia Bedelia!; Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor and now Calling Doctor Amelia Bedelia, her nephew is carrying on -- for a new generation of readers -- the tradition she began years ago.

In His Own Words... "In true Amelia Bedelia fashion, I backed into writing these books about the literal-minded housekeeper who children laugh at and love. Amelia Bedelia was created by my aunt, Peggy Parish. Although she passed away in 1988, Peggy still received fan mail from children. They wondered when the next Amelia Bedelia book would be out. Then other children's authors wrote and volunteered to continue the series. I felt uneasy about Amelia Bedelia leaving our family. As I was in the fourth grade when she first appeared, I had literally grown up with her. So I decided to try to write a new Amelia Bedelia adventure. My two sisters and my family were very supportive and encouraged me. I'd had experience in writing advertisements. I reread the Amelia Bedelia stories to figure out what made them funny. I realized that everyday life overflows with idiomatic expressions, literalisms, and homophones. It's amazing more people don't get confused-besides Amelia Bedelia! My first book, Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia, took me a year to think about and one night to write. I had been collecting ideas, homonyms, and expressions. Whenever I heard them, I jotted them down: on napkins in restaurants, on my newspaper while riding the bus, and on agenda sheets in business meetings.

I stockpiled these fragments in a folder until one Sunday night, with my family asleep, I decided that it was now or never. I sat down around ten o'clock and began to write. I was so focused on the story that I finished as the sun came up on Monday morning. Naturally, the story needed revision, but the essence was captured in that all-night writing spree.

I am fortunate that my editor, Susan Hirschman, and the illustrator, Lynn Sweat, had worked with Peggy on many Amelia Bedelia books. That helped make the transition from Peggy's books to mine as seamless as possible.

I feel very lucky to be writing Amelia Bedelia books and continuing a family tradition. But the best reward was when a child wrote Peggy Parish a fan letter. It said that Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia is the best book she has written. To me, that's the highest compliment I could hope for."
