Who Was Emelia Earhart?

Amelia Earhart captured our hearts in this moving biography for young girls.

"Someday the remains of Amelia's plane may be found. Whether that happens or not, it doesn't change what Amelia Earhart did in her lifetime. She didn't just fly planes. She didn't just break records. She opened doors for women all over the world. She was the pioneer who said, "You can do anything you decide to do."

"Amelia Earhart was a woman of many "firsts." In 1932, she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1935, she also became the first woman to fly across the Pacific. From her early years to her mysterious 1937 disappearance while attempting a flight around the world, readers will find Amelia Earhart's life a fascinating story."


  1. Amelia Was also great poet, she was writing about the thrill of flying, the majesty of the skies, and the glory of achievement. Girls would get a lot of courage learning about her inner life.

  2. Z! How wonderful for you to pop in! The book did mention that she wrote but it said she didn't think she was a very good writer. I will have to find some of her poetry to read with my daughter and share here!
