Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School by Herman Parrish

Amelia Bedelia is a familiar face and name to many young readers. In this new book, we get to meet the young Amelia Bedelia. We can see that she's doesn't change much (in looks or actions) when she grows up.

What I thought: delightful! I read the Amelia Bedelia books when I was in elementary school. I'd forgotten how much fun she was. While some might think her odd, I find her logic very logical. She takes people at their word. Can't wait to see the next book in this young Amelia series.
