Learn to read with the classic Amelia Bedelia!

Ever since Amelia Bedelia made her debut in 1963, young readers have been laughing out loud at the antics of this literal-minded but charming housekeeper.

Amelia Bedelia is helping out at the library! She may not know the difference between a stegosaurus and a thesaurus, but Amelia Bedelia will go to any lengths to make reading fun. This Level 2 I Can Read is perfect for kids who read on their own but still need a little help.

"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."—The New York Times Book Review

I grew up reading Amelia Bedelia books and I always got a good laugh out of them, but this one wasn¿t as funny. I would still recommend reading it to students, especially in a library class.

A cute series with a funny character that takes things literally to the point of hillarity. This story shows Amelia Bedelia helping out at her local library. She helps the best she knows how and ends up helping out the library.

Will our crazy Amelia Bedelia get in trouble for stealing the bookmobile? Of course not! The head librarian is very impressed when Amelia Bedelia puts an art teacher in charge of the children and they create a "Word Eating Thesaurus," "Giant Periodical," and "Prehistoric Bookworm." Amelia, meanwhile, has been mistaken for a storyteller, made bookmarks, and discovered that a thesaurus is not a kind of dinosaur.
