I think Amelia Bedelia books are fun! :) I loved them growing up and my kids are loving them too. I chose 5 and up because younger kids don't always get all the funny parts, but my 5 yr old does and thinks they are funny.

This series is perfect for kids. It is funny and cute, with a maid who misinterprets everything. Kids will laugh and laugh.

Rethinking Amelia Bedelia in a non-Victorian era context.

1. Is it possible for any 6yr old to understand Victorian era references in 2010? 2. Young children will automatically assume that Amelia is "special" and therefore is incapable of holding any other position than Maid. 3. Being a Maid must be a position for the inept.
