I have all the books from this series, and this is the one I have read the least. It is by no means bad though, and so much better than other books that are out there. I honestly feel that it is worth it to buy this book to support such high quality books with such charming illustrations. And despite the lack of a strong story, the book did educate my children by giving them a general overview of Amelia's life (my children were able to identify Amelia Earhart from a picture in another children's book called Violet the Pilot, so I guess my kids got something out of it). Still I felt the need to supplement the book with additional information about discrimination, and why she was so highly regarded when there were other women pilots back in the day.
She knows Amelia thanks to Brad Meltzer. I've purchased Brad's books as gifts for friends and family. I highly recommend them.
We both love the inspiring and encouraging messages of the book. The story of Amelia is told in a way that helps my granddaughter see that Amelia was just an ordinary girl, just like her. In fact, since we started reading these books, her career aspirations have been expanding, to my delight. ("Rock star", while a nice career, was never my dream for her. Now she's considering "scientist", "doctor", "veterinarian"!)
Brad Meltzer's book expand the awareness of the reader, teaching them, as Brad says, that Ordinary People Change the World.
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!
