Read full description of the books:
Happy Haunting, Amelia Bedelia by Herman Parish is published by Scholastic Inc. in 2005. There are 64 pages in this book and I gave it 4/5 stars because I think Amelia Bedelia is hysterical and she takes everything so literal and makes it a funny story. The genre is fiction, the grade level would be 2-5th grade, the Lexile is 480L and the Guided Reading Level is K.
This Amelia Bedelia book is how Amelia Bedilia had gotten ready for Halloween with Mr. and Mrs. Rogers. She helped both of them decorate their house as a haunted house. Of course she takes some of her chores that she was asked to do, such as "crack open a window" or "put a leaf on the table". She then was able to disguise herself since she always wore costumes, and you have to be different on Halloween. Amelia had a great time at the Halloween house with Mr. and Mrs. Rogers.
The activity that I would have my students do would be to have a figurative langugage worksheet to show similies, idioms, and metaphors.
The CCSS for this activity would be CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.4.5
Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
Explain the meaning of simple similes and metaphors (e.g., as pretty as a picture) in context.
This would go hand and hand with the activity to help students practice figurative langugage.

Read information about the authorHerman Parish is the author of Amelia Bedelia children's book series, nephew of original author, Peggy Parish. Having grown up with his aunt’s tales of Amelia’s humorous misadventures, Herman decided to carry on the legacy after his aunt’s death in 1988. He did not wish to entrust the future of the series into the hands of a children’s author outside of the family. Since Peggy had the summers off from teaching, she was able to stay with the Parish family for extended periods of time, allowing Herman and Peggy to develop a close relationship. More importantly, this gave Herman a chance to keenly observe Peggy during her writing processes, gaining great insight to the road ahead of him. To carry on the essence of the series, Herman thoroughly examined his aunt’s work and did his best to capture what exactly made the character of Amelia Bedelia such a hit. Having editor Susan Hirschman and illustrator Lynn Sweat in common with his aunt helped to make the transition. He has added thirteen more books to the series. Herman is a resident of Princeton, New Jersey, and travels to libraries and schools across the United States, speaking and inspiring young children. The importance of revising and editing is often stressed during these dynamic lectures. He has presented to students in more than 22 states.
