This book is about Amelia Bedelia teaching kids. Mr. Carter gave a list to Amelia Bedelia and it said, call the roll. Amelia Bedelia asked the class for a roll. "I have one," said Peter. She put it on the floor and said, "Roll! Hey roll!" and then she said, "That takes care of that."

Amelia Bedelia read her list. "Land sakes! Listen to this...sing a song! I never was much of a hand at singing," she said. Amelia Bedelia sang and she read the next thing on the list.

We loved this book because she made very, very funny mistakes. We liked when she called the roll and when they planted the light bulbs. Our favorite character is Amelia Bedelia because she is so funny. This book is like Come Back, Amelia Bedelia. It's like all the Amelia Bedelia books because they're funny.

We think this book is great! We think everybody would like this book.
