Product Description

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-The beloved Amelia Bedelia is back, this time as a helper in the school science fair. Naturally, the literal-minded housekeeper runs into all sorts of misunderstandings, from insisting children are way too young for "makeup" tests, to wondering why Dr. Dinglebatt, the judge, is a mad scientist. Havoc breaks loose when Amelia Bedelia adds too much baking soda to a volcano model, and when the professor's hairpiece falls on a computer, a child screeches, "A rat is attacking the mouse!" As per formula, all ends happily with food and smiles while everyone eats the maid's famous lemon meringue pie. Sweat's familiar watercolor-and-ink illustrations are helpful in understanding the wordplay.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. When Amelia Bedelia volunteers to help at a school science fair, she soon becomes the center of chaos. Children willing to suspend disbelief during the episodic story will be rewarded with a few laughs as the amiable mistress of misinterpretation tries to help the children and the judge, a professor improbably named Dinglebatt. After Amelia Bedelia pours too much baking soda into Jason's soda-and vinegar-powered volcano model, it produces an explosion instead of the usual fizzle and drizzle. Using the leaf blower from Wendy's flying-saucer demonstration, she attempts to control the eruption. Instead, she sends Dr. Dinglebatt's hairpiece soaring across the gym. Well designed for young readers and brightened with ink-and-watercolor illustrations, this cheerful book extends the popular series. Carolyn Phelan

Amelia Bedelia is a crack up read for both boys and girls. It is a beginner book but or the more difficult side of beginners basically because the story is full of jokes that require some extra processing for the reader. There are more I Can Read Books with Amelia Bedelia and we have them all.

A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
This review is in the words of a 6-year-old

This book is great. It made me laugh. Amelia Bedelia is always funny and in this book she is silly at the science fair. I liked it more than most of the other Amelia Bedelia books.

Feminist issues with "Rocket Scientist" Aug. 14 2014
By theatergal - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although it has the trademark Amelia Bedelia idioms to teach in a fun way, as a feminist I have issues with this book, namely the "gee, I'm not a rocket scientist, I better just stick to housekeeping" sentiment and the condescending "oh, Amelia, but see you are actually a chemist since you bake lemon meringue pie, ha-ha". Not to mention the title with the question mark at the end, like, could there be anything more questionable than Amelia being a rocket scientist?? Isn't this girl ridiculous? Erm...not if you're trying to raise a daughter in this century, it shouldn't be.

A fun book which plays with language and talks about scientific to boot. How can one woman get so confused?

I purchased 2 copies of this book as a donation to Wounded Knee District School in Manderson SD. It was a special request by their Principal who is trying to build resources in the desperately poor Pine Ridge Indian Reservation school. Many of the kids have NO books at home. They have a wish list at

There's a science fair at school, and Amelia Bedelia is helping out, in a way that only she can!

Of course, all will be well in the end, but first there will be laugh-out-loud midadventures including a toupee on a computer, getting the "bugs" out of an invention, and enough misunderstandings to make Amelia Bedelia, Rocket Scientist? one of your child's favorite books.
