Amelia Bedelia's employers make the mistake of asking about Amelia Bedelia's family. Every time she tells them about someone, it turns out that their careers are not what her employers think (her olive-stuffing niece, doesn't stuff things into olives- she stuffs olives into herself). Finally Amelia
Show Moreis told to invite everyone to her party, and she invites the whole block, not just her whole family.

Amelia is taking quite the literal sense on describing her family. Mr. Rogers would like to meet her family for the first time to invite to a party.

I really like how on this book opens for discussion on the last page. This would be a great time to allow the students to point out who is who from Amelia's family. This would also be a great writing activity to do with your class by allowing them to name their family members and something that
Show Moremakes them special.

Amelia Bedelia goes through her family album with Mr. and Mrs. Roger's who want to throw a party for her family. Amelia shows them pictures of her family and tells them what they do. Mr. and Mrs. Roger's think the good of what Amelia Bedelia tells them about her family but its nothing like what
Show Morethey think. Amelia invites her whole family and the whole neighborhood over for the party. This can be read when teaching about families and making a family tree.

I think I liked this book the most because it was about family. I related to Amelia when she talked about her family and pictures. I think children also love to share things about their personal life so they would really enjoy reading this book as well. Peggy Parish made me feel as though I was in
Show Morethe book.

Amelia Bedelia’s Family Album is about Amelia Bedelia's explaining her family members to her employers. The book humorously touches on the multiple interpretations of words. I think this is a great book. I have always loved all the Amelia Bedelia books. One reason I really enjoyed this book is
Show Morebecause I think that the play on words is really funny. For example, Amelia Bedelia says that her father is a telephone operator. Her employers, Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, then say that he helps people make calls, but Amelia Bedelia explains that he does not help people make calls, but actually operates on telephones. I also really like this book because of its systematic setup. Amelia Bedelia introduces a family member and says what he or she does, Mr. and Mrs. Rogers make a statement about that occupation, Amelia Bedelia is confused about what they say and then corrects them, and then Mr. Rogers says “I see.” I think that the predictability is really helpful for beginning readers to keep on track with the story.
