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.
