I AM AMELIA EARHART

I am Amelia Earhart: Brad Meltzer

Amelia Earhart was a daredevil from the moment she could walk. Wearing dresses and acting all girly was not her thing. In her memory Brad Meltzer has written this outstanding tribute to this amazing aviator. Amelia Earhart did things that would stupefy, mystify and enrage of grandmother. Imagine at seven creating and building her your own roller coaster in your back year. See what she constructed as illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos brings the roller coaster to life in living color. But, not everyone thought this was a great idea. Her brother questioned what she was doing and even more was this thing going to be safe? Okay: so she was going to ride this thing even though it was built and housed at the top of her small shed in her backyard. Get ready to see Amelia take her first flight. She was flying but wait until you hear what her grandmother says after the crash landing! But, this was just the beginning for our famous pilot. When she was older she frequented air shows and she managed at the age of 23 she met Frank Hawks, the man who would establish his own flight records to take her up for ten dollars on her first flight. Imagine the excitement! Join her on the flight as she takes off within the pages of this book.

Amelia was determined to become a pilot even if saving for lessons meant driving a truck, working as a stenographer and even a photographer. Six months later she bought her first plane! She named is Canary. How cool is that! A woman instructor would lead the way in helping and teaching Amelia how to fly. Amelia shares a special secret about her ability to be a pilot. Never giving up and always working hard were her trademarks.

From that roller coaster ride and told what so many would continue to say that it couldn’t be done, Amelia was the first to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Guess what! She was the first woman to fly by herself across the Atlantic. People took boats to get to Europe but she wanted to fly. On the day she took of one magazine wrote an article stating she would never make it that far. Join her on her journey as she takes off and takes flight crossing the Atlantic and find out if she makes it.

In her mind she heard the words of so many saying that she would never be able to do it. That’s what drove her forward. In her own words: Never let anyone stop you. Whatever your dream is, chase it!

She knew no bounds. She did things never tried and she proved that anything is possible. “ Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn’t be done.” Amelia Earhart.

This is great for students of all ages and adults too to teach children that you can do anything if you try. Never give up on yourself and hard work pays off. This is great for teaching character education, the history of a great aviator taught in an interesting and meaningful way and bringing to life the story of one of our Ordinary People who managed to Change the World in a Positive Way! Once again author Brad Meltzer hits the mark with his account of this amazing woman whose remarkable life and whose courage will live on forever.
