Title: Amelia Bedelia Chapter Book #1: Amelia Bedelia Means Business
Author: Herman Parish
Young Amelia Bedelia will do almost anything for a shiny new bicycle. Her parents say they’ll split the cost with her, and that means Amelia Bedelia needs to put the pedal to the metal and earn some dough! With Amelia Bedelia anything can happen, and it usually does.
When Suzanne, the new girl in Amelia Bedelia’s class, arrives at school riding the most beautiful bicycle in the whole world, Amelia Bedelia decides she wants a new bike, too. But Amelia Bedelia’s mom says that a bike like Suzanne’s is so expensive it will cost an arm and a leg! What? Amelia Bedelia doesn’t want to give away one of her arms and one of her legs. She’ll need both arms to steer her new bike, and both legs to pedal it. Amelia Bedelia decides to get a job, so that she can earn the bike money instead. She tries:
1. Helping out at Pete’s Diner
2. Opening a lemonade stand
3. Entering a contest to win a prize
4. Baking treats and selling them
Will Amelia Bedelia ever get the bike of her dreams?
