Amelia Bedelia’s First Day of School By Herman Parish


Back of Book: 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.

My Review: I am a huge fan of the original Amelia Bedelia stories so when I saw that there was a new version I knew I had to read them. This is a fun first day of school book to read with your students. Amelia Bedelia gets several things mixed up and her silly antics will make nervous students feel better about making mistakes. The illustrations in this text are fun and keep children engaged.
