The first book in a new arc in the New York Times–bestselling Amelia Bedelia chapter book series featuring young Amelia Bedelia and her friends! The big day is finally here—Amelia Bedelia’s school, Oak Tree Elementary, is 100 years old, and the whole town is throwing a party. Best of all, a secret time capsule that has been buried for an entire century will finally be dug up and opened! Amelia Bedelia and her friends have some guesses about what they’ll find. Are they right? Or is everyone in for a big surprise?
A funny chapter book series about friendship perfect for fans of Ivy + Bean and Clementine. The Amelia Bedelia books have sold more than 35 million copies since we first met the iconic character in 1963! Includes “Two Ways to Say It,” Amelia Bedelia’s guide to the idioms used in the story. Illustrated in black and white throughout.
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.
