Book of the Week! July 20

Amelia Bedelia
by: Peggy Parish
Amelia Bedelia was one of my favorite characters as a child. Parish's writing is easy to follow and fun to read along with, so this book is perfect for reading together.

Summary:From dressing the chicken to dusting the furniture, Amelia Bedelia does exactly what her employers tell her...But somehow, things don't turn out quite right!Recommended for ages 4 to 8.

Some Activities for you and your child:
1. Amelia also has stories of her childhood, check out HarperCollins Children's Meet Amelia Bedelia website with many great activities to do with your children. Find it here: http://www.harpercollinschildrens.com/kids/gamesandcontests/features/amelia/fun.aspx

2. Talk about what can be taken literally with your child. Making a sponge cake with actual sponges? Dusting the furniture? What is being "literal?"
