Throwback Thursday: Amelia Bedelia
Throwback Thursday is a new feature at Reading Lark. We'll still be doing some Book Boyfriend Posts and Book BFF Posts on Thursdays as well, but the Larks wanted a little variety on Thursdays. Throwback Thursday will allow us to throwback to some of the reads we've loved -- whether it's a book reviewed last year, a book we hid under the covers to read as a teen, or a picture book from our childhood -- we hope you'll enjoy reliving the memories as much as we do!

Who didn't love Amelia Bedelia? I wanted her to live in my house when I was little. She was funny, kind, and good at cleaning (I did, and still do, hate chores.) Even as an older reader (all of 8 years old), I remember checking all the Amelia Bedelia books out from the library when I was WAY too old to be reading them because they were still so funny to me. And I'm sure my love of her cluelessness is why I loved Pippi Longstocking as much as I did once I got older. Amelia Bedelia (you have to say both names, always) was probably her long-lost mother.
