Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The literal-minded maid returns, accompanying her employers on a camping trip. When Mr. Rogers tells Amelia that it's time to hit the road, she does, with a stick. PW remarked that Parish's Read-Alone volume would "send kids into gales of laughter."
Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

The late Peggy Parish, well known for her stories about Amelia Bedelia, wrote many popular books for children, including Dinosaur Time, illustrated by Arnold Lobel.

"I hate reading but your books are changing my opinion." This letter, from a young Peggy Parish fan, comes as no surprise to the teachers and librarians who have put her books in the hands of children over the years. Ms. Parish wrote nearly three dozen children's books-many of which include her most famous character, the literal-minded maid named Amelia Bedelia.

Peggy Parish knew what children like to read. After graduating from the University of South Carolina with a degree in English, she taught school in Oklahoma, Kentucky, and, for over 15 years, at the well-known, progressive Dalton School in New York City. It was at Dalton that she began to find ways to release her creative ideas and energy, Though she never took a writing course, "writing stories for children came naturally." Her first book, published in 1961, was followed with Let's Be Indians and in 1963 with her unforgettable Amelia Bedelia.

Always involved with education in some way, Peggy Parish did television pieces on preschool education and children's books, wrote children's-book review columns, and led numerous in-service training workshops for teachers. In discussing her ideas about education, she said, "Children's rights are taken away from them when they enter school. What I try to show teachers is that all the skills needed to read can be taught outside of textbooks. Today's children are not going to read what they are not interested in. And if a positive attitude toward reading is not developed during the first three years of school, it is virtually impossible to develop it later."

After living in New York for many years, Peggy Parish returned to her native South Carolina. She died in November, 1988. But Ameila Bedelia did not die. Peggy Parish's nephew, Herman Parish, has written Good Driving, Amelia Bedelia and Bravo, Amelia Bedelia!, published by Greenwillow Books in 1995 and 1997 respectively.

My granddaughter Rita is helping me write this review. She says this is one of her favorite books, and she recommends it to other kids. Rita read this book when she was in first grade. She's in second grade this year.
Rita says the story starts when the familiy is going on a camping trip. She says Amelia's Dad says "Let's Hit the Road" and and Amelia picks up a stick and starts hitting the road. Amelia seems to always get things wrong. When they get to the campsite she falls in the river and her clothes are all wet.
But one day, Amelia's Dad forgets his own birthday, so Amelia Bedelia makes a cake and fancy dinner for him. And the family starts singing "Happy Birthday to You." And he thanks Amelia Bedelia for the cake. Amelia finally does something that pleases her Dad. The End.

It is about a funny camping trip. My favorite part is when Amelia Bedelia goes boating, and takes all the boats with her. I am seven years old.

Amelia Bedelia books Sept. 28 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My grandsons loves these books as well as the junie B jones books they are so full of funny little incidents and ideas. I think these books keep the childrens attention and give them a laugh. They also get involved with things they enjoy camping fishing school things they can relate to themselves.
Please Read to your Children or grandchildren it creates a special bond and my 8 yr old grandson is top reader in his class 3 years and I think it is where he and I always read books when he stays with me which is almost every week end and it has become one of our nitely rituals and now I am doing the same with a 4 year old and 20 months old.

Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping Jan. 14 2012
By Andrea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Amelia Bedelia is the housekeeper for Mr. and Mrs. Rogers. (I would say she's probably about 18?) She takes everything literally; doesn't understand figures of speech. Because of this, she gets into some very interesting situations. But she does have an incredible talent: cooking, because she follows directions verbatim.

In this particular book, Amelia and the Rogers go camping. There is a tent to be pitched and fish to be caught. Will Amelia pitch the tent and catch the fish? Because of Amelia's literalness, will there be a disaster at the campsite? Will there be a happy ending indeed?

I love Amelia Bedelia books. If you haven't been lucky enough to discover her, I recommend these books.

Amelia Bedelia is one of my favorite characters. Even though these are children's books, I find a bit of coziness in these books. I have loved Amelia Bedelia every since I discovered her (when my kids were little.)
