Remember falling in love with biographies after reading this one, my first. I think I read back in junior high but there are many updated versions as well. Inspiring!

This story is a biography about one of the most famous women in American History during the 1930s.

Purchased for niece, thought I might as well read it first myself. This is a delightful and inspiring book for young readers. Not only does it describe Earhart's accomplishments, it gives details of her difficult childhood and challenges she had to overcome. throughout her life. I very much enjoyed this book.

It was a really good book. I liked it because it was really interesting to learn about Amelia Earhart.
MCL. When she flew across the ocean she ate hard-boiled eggs and hot tomato juice. I would pick something different to eat, but it probably kept her from being hungry.

I don't like non fiction very much... but this was a pretty good book.
