…accessible to young readers, and is jam-packed with lots of information about Amelia Earhart, and her amazing accomplishments. I like that she is portrayed as more than a pilot: she was a very effective women’s rights activist as well…I’d love to see more books like this! —Amazon reviewer, emmeline
