" 106 pages. Well-written information on an aviator icon. Author explains her life in enough detail that an elementary student could do a great report. Illustrations and other added information like a timeline at the end is very helpful. Highly recommended for grades 4-6. " said.

" This story is a biography written for children about the life of Amelia Earhart. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars because it because it is informative and paints an exciting picture of her contributions to flight. " said.

" Genre: BiographyGrade level: Intermediate/Upper Elementary This short chapter book about Amelia Earhart shares about her life in a fun way! Thought the book, there are illustrations that help tell the story. One thing I really enjoyed was how throughout her life, many historical events happened, so there would be a page or two about that specific event. This is a book that students could definitely read on their own! " said.

"Amelia Earhart is incredible.

Everyone knows she was the first female to fly the Atlantic solo (she was also the first female to cross the Atlantic in a plane as a passenger) and how her story ended, but I didn't know about all the other ways she was amazing.

First off, she was just a wicked cool person. She always knew her own mind and didn't let society dictate what she "should" do or be. Even though her family had a lot of money, when she went away to school she'd tell her mom not to send any money for clothes because she didn't want them and she usually bought her stuff secondhand. I love how down-to-earth she is.

When she was a little girl they went a World Fair and she saw a roller coaster. She decided that she was going to build one. It nearly caused her to run into a horse but she ended up going through it's legs instead!

She didn't want to get married because she didn't want to give up her career. She didn't see why women had to choose. Even when a guy she liked followed her across the country because he still wanted to marry her, she said no because she wanted to be free to live her life the way she wanted.

She loved learning to fly. It's lucky her parents had the money to support her lessons at first, later on, when there were money troubles, Amelia worked hard and did things she didn't really want to, (writing and speaking) to help earn money to keep flying.

She met George Putnam when he asked her to be a female passenger crossing the Atlantic. Even though she didn't fly the plane, since she was the first woman, she still got a lot of attention and that helped jumpstart her own flying career and eventually she became the first woman to fly the Atlantic solo.

She inspired a lot of women and young girls. She helped start a flying club for women and helped an airline company convince more people to fly. She did stunts and always pushed herself.

I wish we'd gotten more time with Amelia. She's phenomenal and in her short life inspired many people.

" Amelia showed the world that you can follow your passions and dreams. " said.

" another in this series that i read before giving to my son to read. it's one of the older ones i think that i don't quite like as much as the newer ones but a good read for young to old. " said.

" Amelia wanted to break records, but when she tried to break harder and harder records, it soon came up to the impossible at the time, she went missing during this flight and is still yet to be found. To this day people look up to her as one of the most courageous and determined pilots who fought for equality between women and men. Amelia Earhart story is about determination and courage. " said.

" A book for upper elementary students, but a fascinating read! I learned a lot from this book myself, and just really enjoyed it. If you have kids, I would highly recommend it, but even if you don't, and want to learn something in a quick minute, take the time to read this - took me just under two hours to read! " said.
