    Title: Amelia Bedelia Talks TurkeyAuthor: Herman ParishIllustrator: Lynn SweatGenre: Transitional chapter bookTheme(s): thanksgivingOpening line/sentence: “It was a cool, crisp morning in November.”Brief Book Summary: Amelia Bedelia has a school Thanksgiving pageant to put on. However, she mixes up the meanings of words and lots of silly things start happening! This hilarious transitional chapter book highlights that it’s okay to find the humor in our mistakes. Professional Recommendation/Review #1:CLCD (Angela Gossler)(’s crazy mixed up adventures are classic favorites of children. They love to hear the many ways she confuses the directions that are given. This book, written by the nephew of the original Peggy Parish, is no different than the many before. Amelia Bedelia is the director of the third grade Thanksgiving pageant and comes across a few obstacles along the way. One of my favorites is the student who asks to play a big role in the play and Amelia makes the girl a big roll costume! This book had my students laughing all the way through!Professional Recommendation/Review #2:CLCD (Marita Richards)( Bedelia and Cousin Alcolu just happen to be delivering a pumpkin to the local school for their Thanksgiving pageant when Amelia learns all the teachers are sick and they might have to cancel the pageant. Amelia Bedelia volunteers to help out. The students seem to be amused by Amelia but accept her and her new ideas for the pageant. Despite a few mishaps, the pageant is a success with all the kids learning teamwork and cooperation. Amelia learns a lot about turkey--stuffing versus dressing--and sweet potatoes. Amelia still remains a little confused about a cast party and carving a turkey, but all ends well in this new addition to Thanksgiving holiday picture books.Response to Two Professional Reviews: Both reviews make note of the humor that can be found in Amelia’s mix-ups and mistakes. The second review gave more of a summary of the overall story, while the first review included more personal opinions. I agree with both reviews in that Amelia Bedelia books are classic, humorous books for children to enjoy. Evaluation of Literary Elements: This book has lots of conversation, and makes use of quotation marks. There are minimal words on each page, making it a great transitional book between picture books and chapter books. There are detailed illustrations on each page as well, which help young readers comprehend the story. The simple plot about Amelia taking on a project she is not-so familiar with, makes it humorous, easy-to-follow, and enjoyable for readers. Consideration of Instructional Application: This would be perfect for a lesson on homophones because Amelia tends to mix up the meanings of different words. Bringing in examples of the homophones (props) could be a fun way to help students comprehend. This would also be great to read around Thanksgiving time to teach students about the different elements/values that go along with this holiday.

    Amelia Bedelia, the famous confused maid, lends a hand at school when the third grade Thanksgiving pageant is about to be canceled because all of the teachers are out sick. But there’s all sorts of mixups because Amelia misunderstands phrases like “dressing room” and “break a leg”. Amelia Bedelia books are usually popular with middle grade elementary kids, and so this would be a good one to include in a seasonal classroom collection.

    I love how she turns everything into a sit com. She thinks the principal is and actor,playing the principal. If someone has the flu she wants to know where they flew,,its funny and easy for kids to keep up with at an early reading level. Great recipes too.Theme- humor, good reading practice, literal, multiple meaning words.

    Amelia Bedilia is always a funny read, and this time, for the Thanksgiving Play, she helps the students put everything together. Things go wrong, are misunderstood, and are learned throughout the rehearsals. There is more humor than learning in the book, although there are many mentions of Thanksgiving traditions, history tidbits, and fun facts about the American holiday.

    I think we can all do without one more book with stereotypical Indians and the myth of the first thanksgiving...

    3.5 typical Amelia bedelia--nice to have something a little different than the typical thanksgiving story.

    The main characters were Amelia and the children. It was pretty funny when they were doing the play about Thanksgiving. The whole audience and the children were saying "gobble gobble".

    Another classic Amelia Bedelia! Funny (with a new take on a classic rhyme) and great themes of thankfulness.

    This one isn't as well done as some of the other Amelia Bedelia books, in my opinion. It's just sort of there. It's about Amelia helping some students put on a Thanksgiving pageant.
