Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The literal-minded maid returns, accompanying her employers on a camping trip. When Mr. Rogers tells Amelia that it's time to hit the road, she does, with a stick. PW remarked that Parish's Read-Alone volume would "send kids into gales of laughter."

My granddaughter Rita is helping me write this review. She says this is one of her favorite books, and she recommends it to other kids. Rita read this book when she was in first grade. She's in second grade this year.
Rita says the story starts when the familiy is going on a camping trip. She says Amelia's Dad says "Let's Hit the Road" and and Amelia picks up a stick and starts hitting the road. Amelia seems to always get things wrong. When they get to the campsite she falls in the river and her clothes are all wet.
But one day, Amelia's Dad forgets his own birthday, so Amelia Bedelia makes a cake and fancy dinner for him. And the family starts singing "Happy Birthday to You." And he thanks Amelia Bedelia for the cake. Amelia finally does something that pleases her Dad. The End.

It is about a funny camping trip. My favorite part is when Amelia Bedelia goes boating, and takes all the boats with her. I am seven years old.

My grandsons loves these books as well as the junie B jones books they are so full of funny little incidents and ideas. I think these books keep the childrens attention and give them a laugh. They also get involved with things they enjoy camping fishing school things they can relate to themselves.
Please Read to your Children or grandchildren it creates a special bond and my 8 yr old grandson is top reader in his class 3 years and I think it is where he and I always read books when he stays with me which is almost every week end and it has become one of our nitely rituals and now I am doing the same with a 4 year old and 20 months old.

My almost 5 year old granddaughter is on a AB kick right now and being a grandmother who likes to give gifts they enjoy I found "AB Goes Camping" and bought it. My grandkids go camping and fishing so this is appropriate for them and they liked the trials that Amelia brings to the story very much. I thought at first that it was too much story for a 4 year old but Mother tells me it's a favorite of my grandchild and they have read it several times already. I'm glad I bought it. There are some newer versions of Amelia in print that are too modern for me. They have an agenda that I don't care for. So if you like Amelia Bedelia in the old fashioned sense be sure to watch for the author. Peggy Parish is the original author and the best. Copies of the other Parish have been a disappointment and won't be purchased again. Check out a free copy from the library before you add one permanently to your personal library.

This was purchased as a teacher's gift for a teacher who has a library in her own classroom. This lady loved books so much that I thought her first grade class would enjoy having this in their collection. I purchased a few, tied them together and she was so greatful, considering she bought most of the books she owns herself. It was a win-win. My daughter got to read more, and she saved money!

I did ask her which books she did NOT have but wanted. I didn't want duplicates and wanted her to have stuff off her wishlist. :)

Amelia Bedelia is a hoot! I bought a copy of this book to read to my two youngest granddaughters on a family camping trip. After the trip, I had to buy another book so they could each have a copy... to take home! This is a fun book to take camping. Heck, it's a fun book anytime!!

Amelia Bedelia is the housekeeper for Mr. and Mrs. Rogers. (I would say she's probably about 18?) She takes everything literally; doesn't understand figures of speech. Because of this, she gets into some very interesting situations. But she does have an incredible talent: cooking, because she follows directions verbatim.

In this particular book, Amelia and the Rogers go camping. There is a tent to be pitched and fish to be caught. Will Amelia pitch the tent and catch the fish? Because of Amelia's literalness, will there be a disaster at the campsite? Will there be a happy ending indeed?

I love Amelia Bedelia books. If you haven't been lucky enough to discover her, I recommend these books.

Amelia Bedelia is one of my favorite characters. Even though these are children's books, I find a bit of coziness in these books. I have loved Amelia Bedelia every since I discovered her (when my kids were little.)

Amelia takes everything literally. So when you tell her to "hit the road", she picks up a stick and hits the road with it. That's the gag throughout the whole book and the whole series. For a very young reader that's a pretty good gag. But I don't know about a whole series, and I don't know about rereadability.

So, what I've done is pick up an Amelia Bedelia to have on the shelf. If it really appeals to any of our little readers, great. There are lots more where this came from. If not, this is a perfectly fine and fun addition.
