Picture Book of Amelia Earhart, A

by David Adler


Quick Overview

This picture-book biography of Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly across the Atlantic solo who mysteriously disappeared, features full-color illustrations.


Adler draws even young onlookers into the life of Earhart, whose Kansas childhood included firing a .22 rifle at barn rats and fashioning a roller coaster from fence rails and roller skates. Her social work, medical research, and study of engine repair are outlined, along with her growing passion for airplanes and flying, which resulted in several initial crash landings. Historic flights and accomplishments characterize Earhart's adulthood, told in a factual, yet anecdotal style sure to interest early readers. Earhart's disappearance, the source of much speculation, is skillfully handled. A brief author's note cites theories about that disappearance as well as the lack of evidence to support them. Size 0.14" H x 8.01" L x 9.54" W, 31 pages
