Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School

Herman Parish, Author, Lynne Avril, Illustrator , illus. by Lynne Avril. Greenwillow $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-154455-2

It's the first day of school for Amelia Bedelia—the concrete-thinking heroine of the long-running series, which, until now, has featured the character as an adult. As in previous books, Amelia's literalism results in amusing misunderstandings: Amelia's “name tag” has her sprinting through the room “playing tag,” and during “free time,” she does as her teacher's idiom—“Glue yourself to your seat”—requests. Readers will giggle over Amelia's mishaps, and her genuine joie de vivre may assuage first-day fears. Ages 4–8. (July)
