Themes: weather, mood, friends, help out

Amelia's mother feeling pretty blue, especially with the glum weather. Amelia encourages her to go out and have some fun to help cheer her up. While her mom is gone, Amelia and her friends decide to brighten her day even more with some colorful chalk drawings in the driveway—flowers, sunshine, and a red carpet included.

Any Amelia Bedelia book is sure to get a chuckle out of me; I love this series and it's literal-thinking character. This one was no different, and sweet Amelia Bedelia doesn't think her mother looks blue at all. She's not even wearing blue. The story is simple, but adorable. It encourages happy thoughts and doing nice things for others. Overall, an excellent read.

Find it (or any Amelia books!) at your library or on Amazon
