Amelia Bedelia is so excited about her first day of school. I believe this book will help children not to be so scared of their first day of school. She loves everything about being at school. This is a funny book that I believe all children will love to read. I laughed so hard the first time I read the book, so I believe everyone should read it.

If you are looking for a clever, funny and pictures just made for kids ages 1-10, then you have found the book you are looking for! This book would bo great in a classroom or for a child ages 2-9! I think two year olds could understand this book, only 4-9 year olds would really get the humor in this book! SINCERELY, BOOK-A-HOLIC13

I gave this book five stars because children really love reading these books. These books are something fun to read that children can relate to. The illustrators are hilarious and very good. Every child can relate to his or her first day of school and all of the strange things that happens to you on that day. You don't fit in. You are trying to make new friends. You are getting used to feeling of school and getting used to your new teacher. I remember my first day of school. Three girls in my class wore ladybug suits all alike. I had to glue fruit loops on paper in the shapes of the alphabet in order to learn what my letters were. I knew no one except for my brother and sister, but they were not in my class. You could discuss friendshis, schoolwork, school rules, and being new to an environment with children.

It is about a girl that goes to school. In your class you could talk about first grade experiences and how that affects each student as they really start to do homework and test. You could also take the book and explain how important it is to come to school and do the work. Also, you could discuss how they can relate to Amelia and her experiences.

The Amelia Bedelia series was one of my favorite series when I was growing up. I was happy to see that Herman Parish had created a picture book for a younger audience. The humor is the same and the style of writing is the same as the longer stories that were written for an older audience. This is an entertaining book to read and I think that it would be great to use as a read aloud in a classroom.

You could use with ELL students and ask them if they can relate to any experiences that Amelila faced. Many times when learning a new language there are similar misunderstandings by taking things too literally.You can teach your students how to play with words and find double meanings in texts. You can also teach how to use elipses, italics when onomatopoeia words are used. Repetition and use of capitals are also very prevalent in the book and can be taught to students.

Realistic fiction for early primary grade levels. Amelia Bedelia (as a child) excitedly comes to school and causes many interruptions and ahs a lot of fun taking things too literally. She learns a lot her first day and is excited tocome back again the next. Media: Water color
