This was the perfect book to read with my five year old niece. It's every bit as adorable as the other Amelia Bedelia books and then some.
Amelia's school is turning a century old and to celebrate, they're unearthing a time capsule. It's a concept kids this age haven't come across yet most likely and led to a great discussion about what a time capsule is and why people would bury them, eventually ending in a talk about what is important enough in our time period to bury for future generations. There is nothing better than a fun, kid-friendly story that pushes them into deeper thinking.
Just like all the books in this series, friendship plays a large role and teaches great lessons at a time when kids are forming true friendships for the first time.
A truly great story, written in an engaging style that drives conversation and imagination. I can't wait to read it with my niece for the second time.
