Amelia Earhart: Young Air Pioneer - Jane Moore Howe
Released September 2000
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
It's quite likely your child has heard tales of Amelia Earhart's disappearance following her attempt to fly around the world. Thanks to the Young Patriots Series' Amelia Earhart: Young Air Pioneer, children will get a glimpse into her childhood and what led to her fascination with flight.
The novel covers Amelia's life before she became a female pilot. Details regarding her upbringing in her grandparents' home and her introduction to airplanes is shared. All of this is done so in a manner that children will appreciate. The vocabulary isn't too challenging, and when a tougher word is introduced there is a glossary of terms. There's also a timeline of Earhart's life and a brief snippet into the mystery regarding her disappearance.
The Young Patriots Series makes learning history fun. I highly recomend this and other books in this series to children with a growing interest in American history.
