Happy 50th Birthday Amelia Bedelia

Amelia-Bedelia

Celebrate Amelia Bedelia’s 50th birthday, on Monday, January 28th

“Amelia Bedelia” books have been a favorite of young children for generations. Amelia’s character is based upon a maid in Cameroon, where Peggy Parish spent many of her younger years. She is a delightful character that repeatedly misunderstands what she is asked to do, and interprets commands very literally. If she is asked to make a sponge cake, she makes it out of actual sponges; if she is asked to weed the garden, she plants weeds!

Check out our Amelia Bedelia book display and enter to win an Amelia Bedelia book of your own!

You can bring in your own home-made Amelia Bedelia birthday card and we will place it on display. You can also can make an Amelia Bedelia
craft to take home!

No registration is needed for this program. Light refreshments will be served as long as supplies last!
