  1. I haven’t read an Amelia Bedelia book in a long time, but for some reason I’ve always remembered her making baby hamburgers, tomatoes, and potatoes for baby food. I know a certain 5-year-old who adores them, though (:

  2. Danzel says:

    My all-time favorite Amelia-ism is dressing a chicken. Classic stuff.

  3. Janet Reid says:

    I love Amelia Bedelia!

  4. Alison Weatherby says:

    Putting out the lights…on the clothes line. Always makes my 3 1/2 yo giggle.

  5. Juliet says:

    Dressing a chicken! I had nearly forgotten! Oh, Amelia.

  6. Deborah Hearst says:

    I grew up on Amelia drawing curtains and dressing chickens. Always with a big heart.

  7. veronica says:

    I’m with Deborah up there – loved the chicken and drawing the curtains. My absolute favorite growing up!

  8. Katherine says:

    Drawing the drapes was the one I remembered best.

  9. Dawn says:

    Amelia Bedelia was a childhood favorite which I enjoy sharing with my kids.

  10. Joyce says:

    Roll call, planting bulbs, stripping the sheets…I’m a teacher I dressed up as Amelia Bedelia a few years ago!

  11. Oh goodness. I most clearly remember one book where’s she’s cooking in the kitchen and she separates the eggs (one on the shelf, one on the counter) and strings the string beans. As a kid, I knew nothing about cooking, but the pictures still made me giggle.

  12. Pam says:

    I LOVED Amelia Bedelia when I was a little girl. I read the books over and over again when I was in 1st grade.

  13. Sunny says:

    The drapes is the one I remember the best. But I just remember GOBBLING up her books!

  14. Cecelia says:

    I love Amelia Bedelia (in fact, my blog is named after her). Most memorable moment? When she made a sponge cake out of an actual SPONGE. What fun!

  15. Danielle says:

    I grew up on Amelia Bedilia, I loved Amelia Bedilia! I always took her books with me on hospital visits (which I had a lot due to my disability), she really cheered me up and made me forget about the hospital. I do not have a favorite quote, sheès too funny and enjoyable to pick just one! :)

  16. Teruska says:

    We read Amelia Bedelia in Story Hour yesterday and had Amelia Bedelia Chocolate Chip Cookies for snack. (Chocolate cookies with potato chips in them.) YUM!

  17. Eric says:

    I couldn’t get enough of Amelia Bedilia when I was growing up. (my favorite spread was the cousin who raced horses from AB Family Album). So happy to be celebrating Amelia’s 50th year.

  18. Joanna says:

    I always remember when she dressed the turkey 😀

  19. Jacqueline Lightcap says:

    Amelia Bedelia was one of my favorite books as a kid and I now read it to my kids. It still cracks me up.

  20. Emily says:

    Amelia Bedelia is so funny!!!

  21. Jackie L says:

    Amelia Bedelia is a great addition to any child’s library :)

  22. Love her! I guess I’d pick drawing the drapes or the turkey.

  23. Catey G says:

    My mom and I read these together when I was a kid. The one I always remember was Amelia hitting the road with a stick. Classic.

  24. Rochel S. says:

    Draw the drapes, and ‘dust’ the furniture! :)

  25. Heather says:

    “Run home, Amelia!” Play Ball was my favorite. Amelia Bedelia made me feel downright competent on the little league field.

  26. mike says:

    Sounds great!
