" Probably more of a level 2 book for young readers than a level 1, but an entertaining and educational read all the same about one famous woman adventurer in a time when that was unacceptable. Filled with great vocabulary words, actual photographs and a timeline of Earhart’s life. " said.

" A short Biography of Amelia Earheart's life-and her passion for learning, helping women and helping others. I am interested in it, because I am a Woman in the work force, and I love to travel. Amelia Earheart was an inspiration, especially in her time. Most women did not work outside the home. She taught them that they have a right to learn, and work- just like men did at the time. A true inspiration. " said.

" level 1 children's bio - well done " said.

"Amelia Earhart grew up in a time much different than the world is now. Cars and trains were the main forms of transportation although planes were beginning to get more popular. Earhart always had a knack for helping people and her first job was as a nurse before she worked at a center that helped poor people. Earhart’s father took her to an air show where Amelia rode in an airplane for the first time. She knew she wanted to fly planes the second the wheels left the ground. She dedicated her life to flying and to pushing the social norms proving that women can do just as much as men. She was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Earhart continued to empower women through her great feats and she quickly became an American hero. Earhart set out a goal to fly around the world but during the last part of her journey, across the Pacific Ocean, Earhart had lost radio contact and she was never seen again." said.

"This wonderful short biography has several effective elements to accompany the stunning photography. I really like the “In Her Time” section that helps learners understand how things in the 20’s and 30’s were different than today. Phonetic pronunciation guides follow many words. Short definitions are provided for key words. There are several direct quotes from Amelia on issues related to equality for women. There are timelines and a map. The “What’s in the World” section has a picture clue game to summarize some facts from the book.
