From the series Ordinary people change the world, this biography of Amelia Earhart is written for junior students. It looks briefly at her childhood describing one of her “unladylike” adventures that earned her grandma’s wrath. At the age of twenty-three Amelia had her first experience of flying and was hooked. Six months of flying lessons, hard work and persistence paid off when Amelia bought a bright yellow bi-plane named Canary.
Amelia continued to push the boundaries of what aviators, especially female, could achieve by daring to do what many thought impossible. She worked incredibly hard to achieve her dreams and this is the message that comes through this title – whatever your dream chase it, work hard, and you will achieve it.
Written in a lively easy manner with bright graphic illustrations this book provides a fascinating look at what makes a hero and why.
