If you are looking for an inspirational, true-life hero to introduce your children to, Amelia Earhart is definitely a good choice! For girls, Amelia played a big role in proving to all of humanity that girls are just as smart and just as capable as boys are.
"Meet Amelia Earhart" was written for children age 8 and up (Grade 3 & up). With many colorful illustrations, this biography focuses on how Amelia Earhart shows us all how seemingly unreachable “dreams” can be accomplished if you are willing to keep working hard until you reach whatever goal you have set in front of you.
Amelia Earhart was the first woman to ever fly an airplane across the Atlantic ocean. She disappeared doing something even more courageous – attempting to be the first woman to fly around the world. For boys, this is a great way to teach them that girls add just as much value to the world as boys do. Both boys and girls can learn the value of respecting each other for hard work and determination and that gender has little to do with whether or not one is successful in life.
