My daughter is looking for a children's book she read when she was a child. It was not an Amelia Bedelia book, but something like it. The little girl took everything literally, one example was that she over hear her parents talking about getting bear claws for breakfast, the little girl imagines a package made of bear claws.

It sounds as though it might be one of Fred Gwynne's books--A Chocolate Moose for Dinner, The King Who Rained, or A Little Pigeon Toad. They were all published in the 1980s--does that sound about right? Unfortunately Omaha Public Library no longer has copies of any of these, but you can "look inside the book" at Amazon for at least two of these; the illustrations are quite distinctive, so that may help you clinch it!  The King Who Rained is here. I'm pretty sure you could borrow any of them via interlibrary loan--you will find details on doing that at http://omahalibrary.org/my-library/interlibrary-loan

Let us know if our guess is wrong, and we'll keep looking!
