Overview

Help kids ages 6 to 9 discover the life of Amelia Earhart—a story about daring to be different

Amelia Earhart became the first woman pilot to fly alone across the Atlantic Ocean in an airplane—and she broke many other flight records before her mysterious disappearance. Before she made history and changed the world for pilots everywhere, Amelia was an adventure-loving kid who wasn't afraid to be different. She worked hard and learned how to fly airplanes at a time when many people didn't think women should be pilots. Explore how Amelia Earhart went from being a young girl growing up in Kansas to an American hero and a celebrated pioneer of flight.

The Story of Amelia Earhart includes:
  • Lasting change—Learn about how Amelia Earhart made the world a better place for future generations of pilots.
  • Test your knowledge—Take a fun quiz about the Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How of Amelia's life.
  • Word definitions—Find easy-to-understand definitions for some of the more advanced words and ideas in the book.

How will Amelia's hard work and love of adventure inspire you?
