Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School Summary

Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School by Herman Parish

The New York Times bestselling picture book! Amelia Bedelia goes to school and mixes up just about everything in this funny picture book about the childhood of the iconic character. The first book in the nationally bestselling series about the childhood of America's favorite literal-minded housekeeper, Amelia Bedelia is sure that she will absolutely love school-after all, what's not to love? But after hopping on the bus "just like a bunny" (hurry up, sweetie!), confusing her name tag with a game (we are not playing tag), and gluing herself to her seat (oh, dear), Amelia Bedelia discovers that what she takes for granted is not always the way the world works. Still, friendships are formed, lessons are learned, and projects are completed, and through it all Amelia Bedelia's teacher, Mrs. Edwards, offers gentle guidance and an open heart. The Amelia Bedelia books have sold more than 35 million copies!

Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School Reviews

"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." -- New York Times Book Review "Readers will giggle over Amelia [Bedelia]'s mishaps, and her genuine joie de vivre may assuage first-day fears." -- Publishers Weekly "Amelia [Bedelia] wears her new picture-book format well...[it] works beautifully as a new way to encounter the gaffe-prone gal." -- Booklist "Returning with her pun-filled humor and misunderstandings of certain expressions, Amelia Bedelia has her first day of school in this adventure...Children will laugh at Amelia Bedelia's antics, and in many cases, the illustrations enhance the text's humor. ...Young readers will relate to the emotions that Amelia feels." -- School Library Journal
