As a young black woman in the 1920s, Bessie Coleman's chances of becoming a pilot were slim. But she never let her dream die and became the first licensed African-American aviator. Reeve Lindbergh honors her memory with a poem that sings of her accomplishment. With bold illustrations by Pamela Paparone, Nobody Owns The Sky will inspire readers to follow their dreams.
A great read to celebrate Black History Month and Women's History Month!
"Nobody Owns the Sky is very much a celebration of life as well as a tribute to a young woman who dared to dream big. It is a splendid picture-book biography of the first order." -- School Library Journal
