Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School

Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School - Herman Parish

9/5/2014 ** I knew, of course, about the literal-minded maid who made such hysterically funny mistakes.  I'd seen newer versions of the books with a different illustration style.  I didn't realize that the character had changed - from an adult maid to a young girl.  I find her mis-interpretations to be more plausible in her new iteration!


I can't wait to get more copies of these books to share with my language learners.  I love seeing the huge smile as they suddenly realize why the other kids in the room are laughing at Amelia's comments.
