Amelia Bedelia Special Edition Holiday Chapter Book #2: Amelia Bedelia Scared Silly (Paperback)
Celebrate the holidays with Amelia Bedelia! Amelia Bedelia, her friends, and her family enjoy some scary (and sweet) fun in this haunting Halloween edition. This chapter book is an excellent choice for children who are ready to read independently, and is terrific for building vocabulary and social and emotional learning. Includes a recipe, a special Amelia Bedelia mask, and a craft project to make at home!
It’s Amelia Bedelia’s new friend Candy’s first Halloween since coming to Oak Tree Elementary. But when Amelia Bedelia tells her new friend how spooktacular it will be—decorations on almost every house and store, the costume parade, the pumpkin carving contest—Candy seems unimpressed.
Then Amelia Bedelia tells her about the Haunted Hayride at Seven Gables Farms, and Candy is convinced. But what happens when the Haunted Hayride is cancelled? Will Amelia Bedelia come up with a plan to save Halloween for her friends old and new?
A humorous and not-too-scary story, plenty of misunderstandings, tons of thrills, and a festive package make this an ideal gift book for newly independent readers and storytime sharing.
Amelia Bedelia has been making readers laugh since 1963, when the first Amelia Bedelia book was published. Now you can meet the young Amelia Bedelia. Come join the fun!
