Item description for Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor (I Can Read Book 2) by Herman Parish & Lynn Sweat...

Overview
Amelia Bedelia misunderstands what her employer wants her to do, and ends up campaigning for the office of mayor.

Publishers Description
The race is on

Amelia Bedelia always does what she's told. So when Mr. Rogers tells her she should run for Mayor Thomas's office, she picks up her shirt, and dashes off to City Hall. She knows just what she'd do in the mayor's shoes (polish them, of course). With Amelis Bedelia in the race, politics will never be the same

More About Herman Parish & Lynn Sweat


Herman Parish In true Amelia Bedelia fashion, I backed into writing these books about the literal-minded housekeeper who children laugh at and love.

Amelia Bedelia was created by my aunt, Peggy Parish. Although she passed away in 1988, Peggy still received fan mail from children. They wondered when the next Amelia Bedelia book would be out. Then other children's authors wrote and volunteered to continue the series.

I felt uneasy about Amelia Bedelia leaving our family. As I was in the fourth grade when she first appeared, I had literally grown up with her. So I decided to try to write a new Amelia Bedelia adventure. My two sisters and my family were supportive and encouraged me.

I'd had experience in writing advertisements. I reread the Amelia Bedelia stories to figure our what made them funny. I realized that everyday life overflows with idiomatic expressions, literalisms and homophones. It's amazing more people don't get confused — besides Amelia Bedelia!

My first book, Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia, took me a year to think about and one night to write. I had been collecting ideas, homonyms, and expressions. Whenever I heard them, I jotted them down: on napkins in restaurants, on my newspaper while riding the bus, and on agenda sheets in business meetings.

I stockpiled these fragments in a folder until one Sunday night, with my family asleep, I decided that it was now or never. I sat down around ten o'clock and began to write. I was so focused on the story that I finished as the sun came up on Monday morning. Naturally, the story needed revision, but the essence was captured in that all-night writing spree.

I am fortunate that my editor, Susan Hirschman, and the illustrator, Lynn Sweat, had worked with Peggy on many Amelia Bedelia books That helped make the transition from Peggy's books to mine as seamless as possible.

I feel very lucky to be writing Amelia Bedelia books and continuing a family tradition. But the best reward was when a child wrote Peggy Parish a fan letter. It said that Good Driving Amelia Bedelia was the best book she had written. To me, that the highest compliment I could hope for.

Herman Parish currently resides in Princeton, in the state of New Jersey.

Reviews - What do customers think about Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor (I Can Read Book 2)?

Amelia Bedelia throws her hat in the ring!  Feb 8, 2008
What a super way for young readers to learn about word play and get a bit of an introduction to the world of government!

Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor is a cute book in this amazing series of laugh-out-loud stories sure to whet your child's appetite for more reading!

Lots of fun here!
 
Inappropriate for Given Age Range  Feb 1, 2006
Kids that are learning to read enjoy plays on words and this book is full of plays on sayings. But not many first graders (7 year olds) are going be familiar with sayings like: "throw your hat in the ring" or "cut the red tape". Just explaining some of these sayings to a young child is a challenge. This isn't a good book to foster early reading comprehension. Instead try some of the first in the Amelia Bedelia series.
 
Secret Ballot  Sep 9, 2005
Aunt and nephew's works never appealed to me. In this silly installment, the well-fed Rogers continue giving Amelia instructions which she keeps taking literally. One such suggestion has her running for mayor and the results are worse than stupid. Too bad she didn't bake something for the mayor.
 
Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor  Jul 11, 2000
This was an informative book which discussed the political system,the qualifications and requirements needed to be mayor. It used lots of political terms in a humorous manner. Backwards Amelia made learning the political sysytem interesting with the play on words. Note to teachers: This is a great tool to teach social studies and figurative language.A mock election could be done.
 
Herman Parish doesn't have his aunt's spark  Dec 9, 1999
I grew up reading and loving the Amelia Bedelia books. It was a very sad day when Peggy Parish died.

It was an even sadder day when her nephew Herman Parish got it into his head to continue the series. His efforts are uninspired and forced. Amelia just seems dumb in his books. In the originals she was a sweet bumbler.

Definitely stick with the early books in the series!
