Poor Amelia Bedelia just can't get anything right. She means well, and everything always works out in the end, but does she give Mrs. Rogers a headache! In Merry Christmas, Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish, things aren't any different.
It's Christmas Eve, and Amelia Bedelia has to get the Rogers house ready for a visit from Aunt Myra. But with Amelia Bedelia in charge, this Christmas will be one of the funniest ever!
I love Amelia Bedelia! She's just so sweet. My students love her because she's so silly. Because second language learners have a hard time with multiple meaning words and idioms, I often use Amelia Bedelia to help teach those concepts.
In this book, Amelia confuses: a date cake, 6 cups of popcorn, that Santa Claus is visiting, Christmas carols, stuffing stockings, trimming the tree, putting colored balls on the tree, stringing lights, and finding the right kind of "big star" for the tree.
I can't wait to share this book with my students.
