- AN I CAN READ BOOK - READING 2 WITH HELP : TEACH US, AMELIA BEDELIA
DetailsWhen Mr. Carter mistakes the lovable, literal-minded Amelia Bedelia for the new teacher, class will never be the same again!ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Peggy Parish was born and grew up in Manning, South Carolina. Before moving to New York City, she taught school in the Panhandle country and in coal-mining areas. Her first job in New York City was with the Girl Scouts, and she now teaches the third grade at the Dalton School in Manhattan. Miss Parish is the author of several other books for children, including the popular Let's Be Indians.ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Lynn Sweat is an artist and writer who is best known to young readers as the man who creates the illustrations to the "Amelia Bedelia" books. Begun by author Peggy Parish in the mid-1970s, the "Amelia Bedelia" series centers on a good-natured housekeeper whose lively literal-mindedness results in consistently humorous results. Although Parish ended the series after a decade, Amelia's adventures were restarted by Parish's nephew, Herman Parish, for a new generation of readers. Sweat has illustrated the entire series, much to the approval of both critics and readers. In addition to the "Amelia Bedelia" books, Sweat has worked on numerous other children's books, most frequently as illustrator. Cluck, the Captain's Chicken and The Wonderful Hunting Dog are among the picture books he has both written and illustrated, while his self-illustrated The Little Stegosaurus was coauthored with Louis Phillips. A story that introduces toddlers to the world of prehistoric beasts, the book was praised by a Publishers Weekly contributor as a "friendly and informative introduction to the dinosaur age" in which Sweat's pencil illustrations "boast an unusual clarity and dimension."
