One of my favorite series when I was in early elementary school was the Amelia Bedelia series. I still remember my librarian reading about Amelia Bedelia running home - to her house, not the base - when she played baseball!! Amelia Bedelia gets herself into all types of these situations since she takes things so literally. Find out why she steals a bookmobile from the library in Amelia Bedelia, Bookworm or how she installs a marble countertop and sands the deck in Amelia Bedelia Under Construction!!!
In addition to the series I grew up with, Harper Collins has released the Young Amelia Bedelia series in the past few years. Now we finally get to see why Amelia Bedelia ends up the way she has!
