School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Amelia Bedelia loves going to school because everyone gets along so well, but that changes when they have a rainy period and the students divide into two clubs: Puddle Jumpers and Puddle Stompers. Each club wants her to join them, but how can she choose? She certainly doesn't want hurt anyone's feelings. After a discussion with her parents and a good night's sleep, the girl comes up with the perfect solution to combine the clubs and make everyone happy. This younger Amelia Bedelia lacks the silliness of her bumbling and literal adult self, even as she pictures rain coming down in buckets. The colorful cartoon illustrations have a nice energy, though, and the text is well placed for emerging readers. Overall, this story goes down like a spoonful of sugar, but it is an adequate early reader, and children who enjoy Amelia Bedelia may enjoy reading about her social scrapes.-Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD (c) Copyright 2014.

Horn Book Review

In Club, young Amelia is "torn between two choices" when her classmates divide into different clubs: should she join the Puddle Jumpers or the Puddle Stompers? In Luck, Amelia breaks a mirror on Friday the thirteenth and learns about superstitions. Literal-minded Amelia's signature mistakes play out in the easy-reader text and lively illustrations; kids will appreciate Amelia's solutions to her age-appropriate dilemmas.
