Reviews - What do customers think about Come Back, Amelia Bedelia (I Can Read Book 2)?
Very funny and good book! Apr 24, 2008
My daughter and I love Amelia Bedelia. Ive been reading them since I was a kid and they are still great! They constantly have my daughter laughing out loud. The vocabulary is great because it introduces new words and also exhibits how some words can have more than one meaning. This of course is why Amelia is always so confused. All in all this is a very funny and entertaining read. I highly recommend these books.
Will Amelia's boss forgive and forget? Feb 8, 2008
Poor, poor Amelia Bedelia -- so well-meaning and so very determined to do everything she is asked to do by her usually patient employer. But, this time, she went too far for Mrs. Rogers who was anxiously awaiting her cereal and coffee. I guess she wasn't expecting the cereal to be in her cup of coffee!
Suddenly finding herself unemployed, our favorite little housekeeper starts a dutiful job hunt. Oh, she's hired for a few new occupations, and once again follows orders to a T. In a beauty shop, she pins up a customer's hair with sharp pins from her purse! As a seamstress, she shortens dresses -- with scissors! If there's a mix-up possible in the world of employment, Amelia Bedelia will master it.
Don't despair, though. Come Back, Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish will see our heroine back at the job she does "best," working for her beloved Rogers family!
This is a lively, quick and humorous read with marvelous illustrations that move the story along for young readers.
Making Mistakes Aug 3, 2006
This book is about the humor of taking things literally. Amelia Bedelia goes from job to job making mistakes because she does things so literally. Once, she saw a sign on a dress shop that said HELP WANTED. She went in and the store owner asked could she sew and Amelia say yes that she was handy with a needle. The owner showed her some dresses that had been marked and asked Amelia to shorten them. Amelia looked at the dresses and said "I don't need to sew to do this". She took out her scissors and shortened the dresses where they were marked. The store owner got mad and told her to leave.

Amelia Bedelia is Job Hunting, Look Out! May 4, 2005
When Amelia Bedelia, the housekeeper who literally takes everything literally, brings Mrs. Rogers her cereal with coffee, the woman takes one look at those flakes floating around in her coffee cup and fires Amelia before she gets a chance to fill her creme puffs. Amelia, one who always sees the bright side of life, sets out to find a job. First she goes to work in a beauty shop, but when she's told to pin up a customer's hair and does it with pins from her purse, she is fired. Then she finds work in a dress shop as a seamstress, but she shortens all the dresses with a scissors and is fired. As a file clerk, she stamps on the letters with her feet when told to stamp them and files papers with a fingernail file when told to file them. And when she goes to work for a doctor, well, you'll just have to read this book to your child to find out what mischief she gets into there. Fortunately she makes a terrific cream puff, because when she remembers she forgot to fill them and goes by the Rogers', they hire her back, because those cream puffs are just oh so good.
My son Devon is fast approaching three. He knows his letters, upper and lower case. He knows they make words and he loves to sit while I read Amelia Bedelia stories to him. We've been doing it for over a year now. At first I made up the story line as his didn't have the attention span or the ability to understand. Now I've started reading, pointing to the words as I go along. Ms. Parish has written an excellent series for children and in this one, Wallace Tripps illustrations set off Amelia's tales to a tee. If you want your toddler to read early, and I do, then this is a series for you.
