These two books were great and funny. Definitely do recommend them to children in first through third grade. (Both of these books are I can read book, level 2. Which it is a reading with help and it has engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play for developing readers.) I also do recommend them to adults, it is guaranteed they will laugh because of the silly things the characters do, especially in the Amelia Bedelia book!
Amelia Bedelia and the surprise Shower by Peggy Parish, pictures by Barbara Siebel Thomas
All the commotion started when Amelia Bedelia learned that the Rogers were going to have a surprise wedding “shower” for Alma. However, no one ever imagine that the party was going to be ruined by Amelia Bedelia because she ironically misunderstood what the Rogers ordered her to get ready. “Mrs. Rogers came in with a bunch of flowers. “‘Amelia Bedelia, she said, use the large silver bowl for the cut flowers.”‘ Instead of Amelia Bedelia putting the flowers on a silver vase, she and Alcolu, her cousin, cut the flowers into a million pieces and put them into a silver trophy. As the story goes on, many ironic circumstances continue to happen. Eventually, Alma is extremely happy with her shower!

This book was not as funny as the Amelia Badelia book, but it was still good. The school was having a halloween party and flat Stanley was super excited to dress up and go through the haunted house. His brother, Arthur, also goes to the halloween party dressed as a monster. All of a sudden, Stanley sees his friend, Martin, who was crying. A bully had taken his big corn candy he had won. Stanley and his brother face the bully. Read the book to find out what is going to happen…
