    I mostly remember this Amelia Bedelia book because it was the book my group chose in gifted class when we had to act out a book, and I got to be the baby. (I always loved being the baby if I possibly could in any play-pretend scenario.) As per usual with Amelia Bedelia, the text is full of Amelia misunderstanding what she's asked to do and interpreting requests literally. She has to give the baby a bottle, but none of the types of bottles she chooses are right! No, the baby won't accept them!

She has to give the baby a bottle, but none of the types of bottles she chooses are right! No, the baby won't accept them! What could be wrong? To be honest I was a little worried about the baby in her care because she was just so monumentally good at misunderstanding that I'd shudder to think what she might actually do if she was asked to "rock" the baby--might she bury her under stones? Happily she never misinterpreted something violently. :)

    Too funny. Squirt has to pause once in a while as he reads this to me, "Mom! She's silly! Doesn't she know anything?!!" Too funny. Squirt has to pause once in a while as he reads this to me, "Mom! She's silly! Doesn't she know anything?!!"

    These are really different than the young Amelia Bedelia books and I thought it was really easy to read. They're a lot like the Biscuit books. Amelia Bedelia is funny because she takes everything literally. I liked the part where it said give the baby a bottle and she gave the baby an empty can because she thought a bottle would break so a can was safer. I would like to read more of these books.

    Amelia Bedelia and the Baby by Peggy Parish is an easy-to-read children’s storybook about a housemaid named Amelia Bedelia. When Amelia is offered a job to babysit, she is initially hesitant because she does not know a thing about babies, but Mrs. Rogers persuades her to take the job since she is good with children, and babies are children as well. Taking the job seriously, Amelia Bedelia takes her list of tasks a little too literal and does humorous things such as put baby powder on herself, pl Amelia Bedelia and the Baby by Peggy Parish is an easy-to-read children’s storybook about a housemaid named Amelia Bedelia.

Taking the job seriously, Amelia Bedelia takes her list of tasks a little too literal and does humorous things such as put baby powder on herself, plays with Missy’s toys, and even feeds her “baby” food, including baby hamburgers, baby potatoes, and baby tomatoes. When Missy’s mom comes home to see the mess that Amelia Bedelia made, she is initially very mad. However, Missy’s parents quickly see how happy their daughter is and they ask Amelia Bedelia to come back and babysit again. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this Amelia Bedelia book and I know that children will love it as well! The text consists of words that young children would be familiar with, and the sketch-like illustrations are consistent from page to page with what is occurring in the novel. I would specifically recommend this book to first and second grade girls, as the reading will be at a level that this age group is capable of understanding. Although the Amelia Bedelia books are an older series, I honestly believe young readers will love them for years to come. They are silly, have excellent illustrations and offer a certain level of difficulty for young students without being too challenging!

    Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish is a story about a house maid, who takes a new job babysitting a girl named Missy. Amelia has been left with a list of things to do in order to take care of the baby. Amelia tends to take every task very literally. When the list says "don't forget to put on missy's bib" at dinnertime, Amelia wears the bib instead of putting it on the baby. The story follows the many tasks that Amelia must do. Even though she is clueless, it is funny to readers who know what she is Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish is a story about a house maid, who takes a new job babysitting a girl named Missy.

Even though she is clueless, it is funny to readers who know what she is supposed to be doing. The story ends with Missy's parents returning home and being angry at first. Once they see how happy Missy was, they invite Amelia back to take care of Missy. The illustrations in this story are not too detailed or complex. There are only a few colors that are used, and these colors seem to be watercolors. They are light and subtle with a lot of white background space. The pictures in this story are essential for adding humor to this story. They represent how Amelia is taking her tasks very literally. Readers see how she is not doing exactly what she is supposed to be doing. I think this book would be great for first or second grade readers. Children at this age would be old enough to realize how humorous this book is, and would be entertained by Amelia's silly mistakes. This book is easy and short to read. This story would be great to teach children to try their hardest, and do the best they can do. Even if they may not always be correct, the effort is what counts.

    I like this book. It’s ok. It’s a Comedy book but I did not find it that funny. Amelia Bedella goes to babysit, except she has no idea how!! This is a disaster (No baby s we’re harmed in the making) My favourite character is Missy because she is cute and funny! But, my least favourite is Mrs. Lane because she can be rude to Amelia Bedelia sometimes. I would rate this book a 3/5, because it made me laugh once or twice but the point of the book is to make you laugh lots and lots! My favourite part is I like this book. It’s ok.

My favourite part is where Amelia Bedelia is supposed to give Missy a mashed banana ,she does but she keeps the peel on! And Missy gets really messy!! My least favourite part is where Amelia Bedelia plays with Missy’s toys right in front of her, and not letting her play with them! This book was made in 1982, so I think this is partly was it’s not a great book. I would recommend this book if you are young or if you are reading this book to someone young. Otherwise I would not recommend this book.

    Amelia Bedelia and the Baby is an amusing story that follows Amelia as she watches a baby for the first time. She is left a list of things to do for the baby, Missy, but like always, Amelia misunderstands the list. Amelia questions the silly tasks, but does as she is instructed. She completes the tasks to the best of her understanding, doing things such as cooking a meal of baby sized food instead of feeding Missy her jar of baby food. When Missy’s mother gets home, she is understandably upset, Amelia Bedelia and the Baby is an amusing story that follows Amelia as she watches a baby for the first time.

When Missy’s mother gets home, she is understandably upset, but realizes that her baby is safe and happy after spending time with Amelia. She relazes and Amelia is invited to babysit Missy again. This story teaches that it is important to be grateful for the things done for you out of the kindness of someone’s heart, even it is completely different than what you expected.

    Amelia Bedelia is back. This time she is asked to babysit by a friend of Mrs. Rogers. Mrs. Lane gives Amelia a list of tasks she needs to do while minding the baby. Of course being as literal minded as she is, Amelia'a day babysitting turns crazy from the moment Mrs. Lane leaves the house. My favorite part is when Amelia cooks the baby dinner.

    Grade: First or Second Grade Summary: Clumsy and confused Amelia Bedelia babysits for the first time. There are many trials and tribulations that are quite funny. Review: This book is fun and hysterical to read. Children will laugh at the outrageous things Amelia says and does. The words are easy to read and the pictures provide funny context. In a class I would have children write stories about what else Amelia might do while babysitting.

    3.5 stars As always, Amelia Bedelia does everything she's supposed to as literally as possible. For example, during playtime, she plays with them instead of the baby Missy. And for supper, instead of feeding Missy some baby food that comes in those jars, Amelia Bedelia cooks up tiny food for her. It's fun to read because Amelia Bedelia is pretty strange and I've always liked Lynn Sweat's illustrations. 3.5 stars As always, Amelia Bedelia does everything she's supposed to as literally as possible.

    Read 6/3/21 Genre: Fiction Grade Level: K-3 I think this is a great book for students who are working their way up to reading chapter books. This is a step up from a picture book, so there is more to the story. I like how the author includes a lot of details, but follows a similar pattern throughout with Amelia Bedelia checking things off her list. I think students would enjoy the fun story and all the trouble Amelia gets into with the baby.

    5 stars & 5/10 hearts. As someone with a ton of babies in their life, this was really funny and enjoyable. I mean, who doesn’t love playing with baby toys?? And this part made me laugh right out: “Put Missy in her stroller,” she read. Amelia Bedelia did that. Then she read, “But first, put a sweater on her.” Amelia Bedelia took Missy out of the stroller. “Your mama should have said that first,” said Amelia Bedelia. I hate badly written lists too XP

    Amelia bedelia is a humorous and light read. Amelia specifically in this book doesn’t know how to take care of a baby so she does what she’s ask to do, cooking and cleaning instead. Children will think the book is funny since it includes a baby and household aspects.
