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.
