Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Amelia Earhart comes alive in this easy-to-read biography. Imaginary conversations are combined with plenty of historical facts to encourage reader involvement and stimulate interest. A great reminder to children that many of our heroes are women, this book will inspire patriotism and a sense of adventure. It would also be a welcome addition for kids interested in airplanes or flying. Part of the "Childhood of Famous Americans" series. 2000, Simon & Schuster, $4.99. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: J. Cooper SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
