"Amelia Bedellia 4 Mayor" by Herman Parish

Amelia Bedelia 4 Mayor (I Can Read Level 2) - Herman Parish, Lynn Sweat

Amelia Bedelia takes everything people say literally but always does what she says she is going to do.  This leads the town to the idea that Amelia Bedelia should run for Mayor. Along the way she confuses homophones, homonyms, and idioms for different meanings. Students could use this book when learning about homophones, homonyms, and/or idioms. They could read the story and identify each homophones, homonyms, and/or idioms and tell what the characters actually meant versus what Amelia Bedelia mistakes it for.
