In this Amelia Bedlia gets fired from all kinds of jobs. Then goes back to her old job.

Amelia Bedelia goes from job to job but get fired at every job because she misunderstands the boss. Amelia Bedelia takes everything as it sounds and does it to what she thinks is right. This is a very funny book and will entertain the children. It shows just because something may sound as one thing it may not be the meaning of it.

Come Back, Amelia Bedelia is part of the easy reader Amelia Bedelia series. Amelia gets confused easily and finds herself fired and on the job hunt. Amelia trys her luck at cutting hair, sewing,filing, and being a receptionist. Through a series of histarical events, Amelia and Mrs. Rogers realize that Amelia is best at being the Rogers' maid. Children will love Amelia's comical mistakes. The text has generally four to five lines per page with an illustration covering a portion of the page. The illustrations clearly show Amelia's mistakes in addition to the other character's frustration. The illustrations are thin lined sketches with bright, vibrant colors and detailed facial expressions. This is a must read for transitional readers.

Amelia Bedelia is, well, being herself as usual. She puts cream puffs in the oven and messes things up as usual, but this time, she gets fired. She attempts a string of jobs (hairdresser, dressmaker, file clerk, and secretary) and gets fired from all of them for being herself. She finally heads home to fill the cream puffs and is rehired by Mrs. Rogers.

This is one of the many books in the Amelia Bedelia series. Great book for young children.

One of my favorites in the series finds Amelia fired from the Rogers and taking her literal act to other businesses as she tries to find another job.

My granddaughter loves this series. She is in preschool, so isn't reading at this level yet. I am certain when she does learn to read this series will be one of her favorites.

I used to think Amelia Bedilia was so funny as a kid, and now I read her books to my kids. The stories are timeless, and silly books are the best to stretch kids' imaginations. I recommend it.
