First, just marry me. I love all the people who have been trying out the books after watching the show. I will say, you can read the books in any order you want. Try The Inner Circle. And most important, thanks.

My daughter loved. It was well done with a fresh take on a story we heard before, but not in a way that it held a five year olds attention. I am sure I will have it memorized in the next couple of weeks.

“I am Amelia Earhart” is another book in Ordinary People Change World series, the educational books written for preschool children by Brad Meltzer and illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos.

This book speaks about Amelia Earhart, a first female pilot who flew across the Atlantic Ocean, allowing children to find out more information about this person who realized her dreams and entered the world history.

As was the case in the book about Lincoln, on its pages author presented the most important events of her life, from childhood to her first flying days until the moment due to which she will forever be remembered as a pilot.

With his work the author sends beautiful message about pursuing our dreams, about not recognizing the boundaries imposed by others, but instead always trying to go further and do more…

Therefore together with other titles from this well-made series, “I am Amelia Earhart” is an educating and inspiring book that could be recommended for preschool children - besides learning some history facts, even more important children will be taught how to fight for their dreams and not abandon them no matter how impossible they may seem.

Together with Meltzer’s educational and inspiring text, Eliopoulos’s illustrations are colorful, well-made and full of imagination which additionally makes this children book that deals with the history in the different way a great read for learning and entertainment.

I sat with my 8 year old grand daughter and she read the book to me. We both loved it, and we learned a lot. It gave us an opportunity to talk about not being afraid to follow your dreams. The pictures are well done, and the writing style is excellent. I recommend the whole series.

I have been waiting for quite some time and it was well worth the wait. Amelia Earhart was a member of Zonta International and this month, her life is being honored. This book will be read in honor of Ms. Earhart to my Zonta Club. Brad Meltzer is a wonderful writer and he wrote another best seller. This book is for women of all ages. Thank you Mr. Meltzer.

My niece is seven and loves this book. I can't agree more. Blends history with fun, and courage with inspiration. It shows how real, ordinary people become extraordinary people that change history.
Get the others in the series as well:
I am Rosa Parks (pre-order due out in Jun 2014)
I am Abraham Lincoln (available now)

Great message, great pictures, great book.
Enjoy!

Brad Meltzer is a new-to-me author. He's written many thrillers and a few children's books. I am grateful to have discovered him. I Am Amelia Earhart is a delightful book about, you guessed it, Amelia Earhart. The book features some fantastic artwork by Christopher Eliopoulos. Meltzer and Eliopoulos make a terrific team.

I Am Amelia Earhart is written for young readers. It takes the reader through Amelia's childhood as she develops her love for flying. Her success and failures are noted. I love at the end they've included photographs of Amelia. I only wish they would have included links or resources where kids could find out more information about Amelia.

This book is charming. I think kids will definitely enjoy it. Amelia Earhart is a hero that kids can look up to!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Beverly L. Archer VINE VOICE on April 25, 2014
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the books in the Ordinary People Change The World series. Other ordinary people include Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks (published in June 2014) and Alberts Einstein (published in September 2014).

I enjoyed this book and I feel that it will appeal to my very young readers. However, I'm not sure I would use for when my students do research on famous people. There are just too many things missing (birthday, doesn't mention her disappearance and there are no source notes.) Having said that, I'm not sure that this book is intended to be for serious research. I think that the intent is to introduce the idea of biographies to young readers. It would work well as a pre-read before reading one of the Rookie Biographies.
