Amelia Bedelia is a hilarious story about a young girl who is stuck with a list of chores to finish. Amelia gets to work on the list of things to do, weed the garden was first. The garden was a mess, with steaks tied to plants and chickens running around playing with her sewing scraps. There is no rule that says the dialogue in a child's book has to be choppy, but it seems to be a trend in the older books.

In this particular episode, Amelia Bedelia is helping out around the house, and, in good 'ole Amelia Bedelia style, many of her chores are done all wrong. Funny story about how Amelia and Effie Lou help her Aunt, Miss Emma with her party preparations-- making a tea cake, sewing seeds, throwing scraps quilting scraps to the chickens, weeding the gardens moving the big weeds to protect the other plants , staking the beans with steaks. I liked how they took everything literally.
