The lovable Amelia Bedelia is up to her old tricks in Amelia Bedelia's First Valentine. This story is packed with the classic “literal word interpretations” that have made the books in this series fan-favorites for so many young readers for decades. When the bus driver suggests that Amelia is holding up the bus, she is quick to point out that the bus is too heavy for her lift. When Amelia’s classmate innocently asks for punch, referring to the sweet drink being served at the party, she does not hesitate to respond to his request with a gentle but clenched fist.

Duck, Goose, Thistle, and Bluebird are exploring colors in their latest board book. “Duck is YELLOW like a field of buttercups,” “Bluebird is BLUE like the sky and the sea,” and “Thistle is GRAY, like some rocks and the sky on a cloudy day.” Green is shown with an inchworm and leaves. Orange is compared to Duck’s feet (which are sticking up in the air), a pumpkin, a carrot, and Goose’s sun hat.
