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.
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.
