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
