Altered Book Club...Amelia Bedelia

Hello Friends,

I am in an Altered Book Club at my LSS and I had to do four pages for a favorite children's book so I choose my very favorite book from my childhood...Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish.  Amelia is the maid that takes everything on her list literally and the book always made me laugh...

Here are my pages...:

Micki...my kids grew up with these books! Totally love what you have done with it. She is truly amazing and we felt it was written for the adults that read to their children ever night. I think we have all the books written about this character. Love it...you did a great job too! I picked up some books to alter today...thanks for sharing!

This is super fantastic! My girls love this book and my oldest daughter wanted to bake a lemon meringue pie after we read this book the first time and we did. Well, I did and she cracked the eggs. Don't forget to dress the chicken for dinner!
