Read full description of the books:
Another in the long line of Amelia Bedelia books -- this one longer than usual. It also required more than the usual amount of explanation to the kids, because they were unfamiliar with art museum terms, such as "reproduction", "bust", and "figure."
An especially odd part of the story happens when a teacher with a class of students passes Amelia Bedelia in the art museum, and asks Amelia to babysit one of her students who is feeling ill. The Amelia leaves the boy painting on a wall while she goes off to watch another painter. Somehow the whole babysitting thing seemed unnatural -- who would leave a child like that? -- and the puns seemed forced. Publisher recommended for ages 4 and up, but might be better for older kids, 2nd and 3rd grade.

Read information about the authorHerman Parish is the author of Amelia Bedelia children's book series, nephew of original author, Peggy Parish. Having grown up with his aunt’s tales of Amelia’s humorous misadventures, Herman decided to carry on the legacy after his aunt’s death in 1988. He did not wish to entrust the future of the series into the hands of a children’s author outside of the family. Since Peggy had the summers off from teaching, she was able to stay with the Parish family for extended periods of time, allowing Herman and Peggy to develop a close relationship. More importantly, this gave Herman a chance to keenly observe Peggy during her writing processes, gaining great insight to the road ahead of him. To carry on the essence of the series, Herman thoroughly examined his aunt’s work and did his best to capture what exactly made the character of Amelia Bedelia such a hit. Having editor Susan Hirschman and illustrator Lynn Sweat in common with his aunt helped to make the transition. He has added thirteen more books to the series. Herman is a resident of Princeton, New Jersey, and travels to libraries and schools across the United States, speaking and inspiring young children. The importance of revising and editing is often stressed during these dynamic lectures. He has presented to students in more than 22 states.
