Publisher's Description

Amelia Bedelia makes her chapter book debut! In Amelia Bedelia Means Business, a New York Times bestseller and the first book in the new chapter book series, young Amelia Bedelia will do almost anything for a shiny new bicycle.

Amelia Bedelia's parents say they'll split the cost of a new bike with her, and that means Amelia Bedelia needs to put the pedal to the metal and earn some dough! With Amelia Bedelia anything can happen, and it usually does. Short, fast-paced chapters, tons of friends, silly situations, and funny wordplay and misunderstandings make the Amelia Bedelia chapter books an ideal choice for readers of the Ivy and Bean, Magic Tree House, and Judy Moody books. Features black-and-white pictures by Lynne Avril on every page!

Look out! Here comes Amelia Bedelia, and she means business! "Sure to be favorites on the early chapter-book shelves."—School Library Journal

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Editorial Reviews

“No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language—and no adult can fail to notice that she’s usually right when she’s wrong.”
Praise for the young Amelia Bedelia series:“Parish has turned the clock back, making Amelia Bedelia young again and giving a new generation of readers the opportunity to enjoy her humor and self-confidence.”
“Her ingenuous spirit will continue to capture hearts.”

    When I saw that a chapter book was being released featuring a younger version of Amelia Bedelia, the literal-minded housekeeper that I was introduced to way back when I was a child, I knew I had to get my hands on a copy. Although I primarily got the book for my own children, I must admit that I first read through "Amelia Bedelia Means Business" to see how this younger Amelia would measure up - and I can say that I am absolutely sold on this adorable Amelia! I laughed my way through this book, chuckling at Amelia's misunderstandings and mishaps as she tried her hand at various jobs attempting to earn money. Only Amelia can get into trouble the way she does! This book is chock full of vivid imagination, and the scenes simply spring to life. And I will even go out on a limb here and admit that at the end of the book, I had a tear in my eye. I'm not even entirely sure why, but it's probably because I have a daughter of the same age and I imagined how powerful a moment that the ending would be for my own daughter. I won't say more as I don't want to give it away. However, there is much to celebrate in this book - the importance of hard work and of not giving up, the blessing of friendship, and the wonderful and open relationship that Amelia has with her parents.

    If you are looking for a fun, clean, and enjoyable read for your children, then Amelia Bedelia is just what you have been looking for. Make sure you pick up a copy of this book - your little ones will be glad you did, and you'll probably be just as entertained as they are! I highly recommend this book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
