The book Calling Doctor Amelia Bedelia is about a housekeeper named Amelia Bedelia. Amelia Bedelia has an appointment with Dr. Horton, but Dr. Horton had to visit the hospital. So, Amelia Bedelia takes over! Read the book to find out how silly she can be, especially in the doctor's office!

My favorite part is when Amelia Bedelia wraps Mrs. Bender in bandages! It was so funny it made me laugh out loud!

I like Amelia Bedelia because she was funny, nice and silly. She takes things literally, just the way they are said. She always perseveres by working hard and not giving up.

I like the illustrations because they helped me understand the story.

I recommend this book to kids from 4-9 years old because Amelia Bedelia is a fantastic character. This book will make them laugh out loud!
