Description

Learn to read with young Amelia Bedelia! The Amelia Bedelia books are great for growing the vocabularies of newly independent readers. Amelia Bedelia Is for the Birds is a funny story about nature, friendship, and family, and it stars Amelia Bedelia as a young girl. More than 35 million Amelia Bedelia books sold since 1963. When a pair of robins begins building a nest in Amelia Bedelia's swing set, she is torn between wanting to clear it off so that she can continue to slide down her slide, and giving up that fun so she can watch the birds raising their babies. She sides with the birds, and observing them informs her about her own family. This is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it's perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences, and features the childhood of America's favorite housekeeper, Amelia Bedelia!

Review quote

"No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language-and no adult can fail to notice that she's usually right when she's wrong." -- New York Times Book Review "Amelia [Bedelia] wears her new picture-book format well...[it] works beautifully as a new way to encounter the gaffe-prone gal." -- Booklist
