Who is your favorite character from a book? One of my favorite book characters growing up was Amelia Bedelia. Amelia Bedelia picture books follow Amelia as a young girl in elementary school and the Amelia Bedelia chapter books follow Amelia as an adult. In each Amelia Bedelia book, there are always several funny circumstances where Amelia does EXACTLY what someone says. In the book, Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping, Mr. Rogers asks if Amelia can row a boat. Amelia then gets all four boats and puts them in a row. In another book, Amelia was playing a game of baseball and someone asked her to steal first base. Amelia picked up first base from the ground and started running with it in her hand. Oh Amelia, you are so silly! If you enjoy reading books that make you laugh, then you will love reading Amelia Bedelia books. The Vigo County Public Library has several Amelia Bedelia books that can be found in the picture book section and the easy reader section in Young Peoples.
