Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—A typical Amelia Bedelia story, tailored for younger readers. Young Amelia Bedelia makes valentines for her classmates with adorable misunderstandings. For instance, she sticks a Band-Aid on a card that says, "Heartbreaker" and puts a blanket on a valentine that mentions being cool. The book's pink, flowery appearance will appeal to young girls. While the content is sweet and the illustrations are well done in color sketches with imperfect lines, resulting in a relaxed feel, the text isn't memorable in the least. Younger children may giggle at a few of the pictures such as of Amelia as a wolf, wolfing down breakfast, but the writing doesn't live up to Peggy Parish's clever and ingenious original books. A supplemental purchase for elementary school libraries and classrooms that can't get enough of Amelia Bedelia.—Shalini Miskelly, St. Benedict Catholic School, Seattle, WA

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 valentines day and it's many customs. Fans of the original series will enjoy this set of books as well.

I grew up reading the original Amelia Bedeliam and while those books were great, I like the stories for the new generation. I think getting to know Amelia as a whimsical child is a refreshing approach to this classic character. My nephew (age 5) is now an Amelia fan after reading this book I sent for Valentine's Day. She reminds him of Junie B. Jones.

I was expecting Amelia Bedelia's First Valentine to be similar to all the other Amelia Bedelia books. It was really completely different, very fresh. We enjoyed it. It was still funny in the usual Amelia Bedelia way. I recommend it.

I picked this book out for my husband and I to give to our 4 year old daughter for valentines day. It was a great choice because Amelia Bedelia makes her friends vday cards, but forgets them on the bus. Shes sad at school, but then remember her mom gave her a new deck of cards (they are in her bookbag), so she turns those cards into vday cards, so everything works out there, they have a vday party at school, she rides the bus home and when she gets off, a boy shoots his arrow it falls on her heart shaped box of candies. This is like cupids arrow that amelia bedelia's dad was talking about earlier in the book. The reader finds out the boy missed school and the vday party so he got no valentines, so amelia gives him hers. he blows her a kiss and she thinks, yuck, i don't love him, but there is no reason not to like him. I thought that was cute. Anyway, amelia goes home and with mom gives dad candies, mom gets flowers, and amelia gets a bracelet from daddy....really her first valentines. I thought very sweet book for dad and daughter to share for preschool and kindergarten aged children that are really starting to understand what vday is. The ending hits home with our family because they have a group hug. Great book. It is hardback, cute pictures, they are busy pictures, lots of things to point out, could be overwhelming for children that can't sit still too long. Fortunatley, mine will already sit through "wordy" books like this and alexander the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. you know long, lots of writing, kind of books, another being gruffalo, chance of meatballs, ummm ladybug girl and bumblebee boy, you get it....anyway....5 star purchase for our book loving family.

Purchased for my daughter for Valentines day. I liked that it was a hardcover book. The pictures are very cute as well as the story. Amelia bedelia always has great stories for little girls and even boys. My daughter is in second grade and read this with no problems.

My oldest daughter loved this Amelia Bedelia book. This was the first ones we have seen with a younger Amelia Bedelia. Plust this one wasn't a complete goof and we both liked that and commented that it was nice to not see Amelia be the one who just didn't get it all the time. Great book for a 7 year old girl.

Good valentine read for a 4 year old. Although they are still exchanging anonymous valentines in preschool, it helps establish the idea of different takes on what is important when expressing love and gratitude.

This book was so corny. It is nothing like the original AB books. My daughter loves the originals, this series is just plain dumb. I found it hard not to roll my eyes at every 'misunderstanding'. Don't waste your money.
