Reading Level: Beginner
Star Rating: ★★★

In this beginning biography of Amelia Earhart, the bare facts of Amelia’s life – her movements here and there and dramatic decisions – are told in colorized splendor. However, as it is a beginning reader, there are few additional details or explanations to give children a full picture of Earhart.

One thing I really liked about Amelia Earhart concerned the layout – each chapter covers a set span of years which are mentioned at the beginning of the chapter. Accompanying these years are the dates of various important events that occurred nationwide during that time, giving us a better sense of the setting into which Amelia was born.

Conclusion. Very basic, but good. Also check out Amelia Earhart by Jane Moore Howe, whichis for a slightly older audience, but has much more information regarding Amelia’s life.
