  • Description

    Generations of children have fallen in love with Amelia Bedelia, the housekeeper so literal-minded that she puts sponges in her sponge cake and pitches a tent by throwing it into the woods.
    Now fans can find out what Amelia Bedelia was like when she was a little girl just starting school. In the picture book Amelia Bedelia's First Library Card, young Amelia Bedelia and her classmates visit the library. Exploring the shelves of books, volunteering at the front desk, and meeting the librarians is so fun! But Amelia Bedelia’s favorite part is getting her very own library card.
    Amelia Bedelia’s First Library Card is a love letter to reading, libraries, librarians, and books.
    Author Herman Parish is a nephew of Peggy Parish, the creator of Amelia Bedelia.
