Cards to give and receive
A party at school
A big, long family hug
What could be better?
Hooray for Valentine's Day! -quoted from Goodreads
I loved Amelia Bedelia when I was younger, and I enjoy seeing her in a younger form, but this is not a story that connected well with my kids as many things were a little over their heads. For example during the Valentine party one of the students asked for punch, so Amelia punched him. While I understood the concept behind that my kids did not and I had to explain it to them. Having said that, I think the over all concept of having Amelia Bedelia act the way she does at this young of an age doesn't work well with the targeted age group. It missed the mark from original charming Amelia. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed reading about Amelia's mishaps during Valentine's Day and how she was able to fix things, but overall this is a story that didn't connect with my kids or myself.
