Amelia Bedelia Chapter Book #6 - Herman Parish

Amelia Bedelia was as free as a bird. She was pedaling her bike as fast as she could. The wind was blowing in her face and blowing her hair straight back. Now she understood why Finally, her dog, loved to hang her head out the car window on trips. Amelia Bedelia really wished that every day was this easy and breezy.

Today she was riding all over town with her friends Holly and Heather. They zipped through the park, zooming past babies in strollers and woofing at the dogs out for a walk. The dogs woofed right back.

Let’s go this way! shouted Holly.

Follow me! yelled Heather.

Amelia Bedelia raced after her friends. As she rode, she imagined changing her name to Amelia Breezelia, Club President!

She had been the president for about ten minutes. Most clubs come with leaders and followers, with a bunch of rules and regulations. But this club was so new that it didn’t even have a name. It had been born in Amelia Bedelia’s backyard when Holly and Heather had stopped by an hour earlier.

I’m bored, Holly had said.

Me too, said Heather.

We’ve got bikes, said Amelia Bedelia. Let’s go exploring. We can start an explorers’ club!

Not just exploring, said Heather. Let’s have adventures.

Let’s make it our job to have adventures, said Holly.

Let’s start the Explorers’ Adventure Club, said Heather.

How about the Adventuring Explorers’ Club? said Holly.

Amelia Bedelia just wanted to stop talking and get going, so she made a suggestion. Let’s call it Our Club until we come up with a good name. And let’s have a rule. One rule.

What rule? asked Holly.

No being bored! said Amelia Bedelia.

Yes! said Holly and Heather together.

That’s settled, said Holly. Now we need to choose a president.

I vote for me, said Heather.

I vote for me too! said Holly.

They turned to Amelia Bedelia to cast the tie-breaking vote.

You’re leaving me no choice, said Amelia Bedelia. I have to vote for the smartest, prettiest, most adventuresome explorer I know.

Holly and Heather looked at each other. Then they looked back at Amelia Bedelia. Then they asked, Who?

Me! said Amelia Bedelia.

They all fell over laughing.

But can we really all be president at the same time? asked Holly, still giggling.

We should rotate, said Heather.

Sure, said Amelia Bedelia. She stood up, turned around in a circle, then sat back down. My dog does that when she comes into a room and sits.

I mean, said Heather, we should take turns.

Okay, you’re next, Amelia Bedelia said.

Holly and Heather stood up, turned in a circle, and sat back down. Then they fell against each other, laughing some more.

Heather stopped giggling long enough to ask, Where should our club meet?

We could meet here, in my backyard, said Amelia Bedelia.

But we’re an explorers’ club, said Holly. We have to get out and see new places!

Do new things! agreed Heather.

Find a cool clubhouse! said Amelia Bedelia.

Yeah! said Holly. Where we can relax and hang out.

They all went back to thinking.

Heather and Holly were thinking about where they could build a clubhouse. Amelia Bedelia was wondering what was so relaxing about hanging out laundry.

Hey, she said, suddenly. What is our club all about?

Having adventures, said Heather.

Right, said Amelia Bedelia. So let’s have an adventure. Let’s go exploring and discover a clubhouse.

No one had to say another word. They jumped on their bikes, and away they went.

Their adventure took them all over town.

    These chapter books are so much better than the picture books of the same name. Fun story lines. The literal Amelia Bedelia seems less forced in these chapter books. My daughter went on to read two more from the series after finishing this one.

    Young Amelia Bedelia is happy with her own bike until she sees her classmate Kaite-Lynne cruise up on a sparkling new, green model. From that moment, Amelia's heart is set on a shiny new bike, but her parents say they will only "meet her halfway"; she must earn half of the money for the bike on her own. Hilarity ensues as the little girl -- age about 8 -- tries her hand at different jobs. As a helper in a diner, she lasts less than a day. She opens a lemonade stand with a sign declaring "Lots of Lemons" next to a car lot. But like the grown-up Amelia in the original early-reader books, young Amelia Bedelia bakes a mean lemon tart, and people can forgive a lot when lemon tarts are on the table.

    I absolutely loved this book! The illustrations were bright and colorful on the cover page including the new shiny bike that Ameila wants. The other illustrations throughout the story are in black and white. The writing is very humorous and keeps the reader engaged when reading. I used to read the shorter Amelia Bedelia books which I loved as a child, and found it funny when she misunderstood all of the sayings that she read. In this book, when the employee says that “it’s on the house”, Amelia really thinks that the item is on the house. The characters are well-developed and I think children can relate to Amelia when she asks her parents for a new bike. The big idea of this story is that if you put hard work into something, in the end you will most likely be satisfied!

    I enjoyed this book for many different reasons. I loved the characters in the book because I felt that they were well-developed. This book does not only focus on Amelia Bedelia's silly personally, but it also enhances the personalities of her parents, classmates, and neighbors. In order to earn money to buy her bike, Amelia helps Pete at his diner. Throughout this portion of the book, I felt like I knew Pete just as well as I knew Amelia. Developing many different characters is great for children because they are able to understand that all personalities are different and everyone brings something to the table. Additionally, I also enjoyed the illustrations throughout the book. For example, when Amelia decorates her bike as a "giant lemon tart," in attempts to attract customers, the illustrations portray her work. In the photo it shows that her tires look like "giant lemon slices," her back holds a sign demanding, "try a bite!" and on the top of her helmet is a "papier-måche lemon." This is just one example out of many that the illustrations throughout the book represent the plot of the story. Lastly, the humor throughout the story is hilarious. Amelia takes everything literally that her family and friends say; this creates a funny story for children to be constantly entertained. Overall, the message of this book is when life gives you lemons, make lemonade (literally AND figuratively).

    Herman Parish, nephew of Peggy Parish (who created Amelia Bedelia), has taken over the reins of modernizing Amelia Bedelia into new chapter book format adventures. It was delightful to visit the still very literal young lady as she tries out jobs to help her pay for a new bicycle. This book is hilarious and completely ready to charm another generation of readers.
