“Amelia Bedelia Helps Out” by Peggy Parish is a tremendously funny read…Amelia Bedelia was read so much while I was growing up…her character is such a big part of why reading was such an enjoyable activity back then…and still is.
In this particular episode, Amelia Bedelia is helping out around the house, and, in good ‘ole Amelia Bedelia style, many of her chores are done all wrong. That is, everything except for the tea cake for Miss Emma’s party. It turns out that, even through Amelia Bedelia followed her “own” recipe in making the tea cake, the tea party turns out alright…great actually. Miss Emma’s friends love it and actually want more…
You’ll have to tune in to this read for Amelia Bedelia’s secret ingredient…, and don’t be surprised if you want some yourself.
I give it 4 stars.
P.S. “Amelia Bedelia Helps Out” was provided on-loan from my local library.
