Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

A great board book introduction to an amazing woman who pushed the boundaries. It’s simple and truthful without making morbid the fact that Amelia never made it back :) Plus, the illustrations are super cute!

Love this book! I love the illustrations, they are beautiful. This book does a great job of telling Amelia Earhart’s story and highlighting important things she accomplished. I love a book with a great female lead! :) I particularly loved that the ending didn’t go into the details of her going missing, but still accurately said didn’t return.

The Notorious RAD
Mom of 1. Wife to 1. #1.

This book has some conflict due to the nature of Amelia’s story. It is thrilling though to tell young kids of one of the first female aviators.
