Grayce: “Amelia Bedelia is so silly – I loved it. My favorite part was when Jeremy blew her a kiss and I loved when he shot the arrow at the heart she made at school. I like how the words on the front cover feel. I learned that Valentine’s Day is special.”
“Amelia Bedeliea’s First Valentine” by Herman Parish is the first Amelia Bedelia book we have read that is the younger version of Amelia and I think my daughter related to, and identified with, this Amelia better. The story is sweet and engaging and young Amelia takes phrases as literally as the traditional Amelia Bedelia books, which makes for a funny story and light hearted read.
