Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With only about one to three sentences per page, this small size biography, one of the series "First Biographies," tells the story of the famed flyer's life. Amelia Earhart was born in 1897, at just the right time to participate in the pioneering days of airplane flight. This book does not do quite as good a job as the "Rookie Biography" version of Earhart's life at capturing her determination and courageousness. The facts of her life are reported rather dryly, and without an enthusiasm that might spark further interest by young readers. Each double page spread includes a full page black and white photograph, useful to convey additional information in such a low reading level book. A nice feature is a timeline along the bottom of the pages that places events in Earhart's life into an easy to understand order. The book also includes a bibliography, glossary, index, and a list of up to date Internet sites for additional research. In spite of the somewhat flat nature of the writing, this book would be a welcome addition to the growing collection of biographies aimed at beginning readers. 2003, Capstone Press,
