Excellent kid friendly biography of Amelia Earhart The message is clear when others say you can t, it doesn t mean you can t Amelia pushed the boundaries in her life, and this book definitely illustrates how she was an explorer. A great perspective at first, she is a kid, dreaming about flying and building crafts in her yard with siblings and friends Then it went into facts as she was older Biography A simple story with a great moral Vibrant colors were used in the illustrations.
