Amelia Earhart refused to accept no for an answer, even as a kid, and she had a yearning fo adventure; she even built a roller-coaster that ran off the roof of her family's tool shed! As an adult, she dared to learn to fly a plane, and dreamed of flying further than anyone else ever had. Earhart would become the first woman to fly a plane all the way across the Atlantic Ocean, inspiring generations of women in flight!
This book from author Brad Meltzer's bestselling Ordinary People Change the World series celebrates Amelia Earhart's daring, individuality, and drive! This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great — the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. A lively, conversational tone and colorful illustrations draw kids in, while a detailed timeline and photos at the back encourage them to learn more — and inspire them to see how they too can change the world.
“Kids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in it," Brad Meltzer realized, and so he envisioned this friendly, fun approach to biography – for his own kids, and for yours. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in an entertaining, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers, those who aren't quite ready for the Who Was series.
