Amelia Bedelia is an eccentric children's literature character that always seems to take commands a bit too literally. This silly housekeeper has done everything from dressing a turkey (in clothes) to dusting the furniture (with powder). First and second grade kids love these silly books and you can help the books come to life for the children by creating your own Amelia Bedelia costume and acting out a story.
