Little Guides to Great Lives: Amelia Earhart - Isabel Thomas

Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic ocean and a pioneer of women's rights. This excellent, accessible and beautifully illustrated guide to Earhart teaches kids about the life of the 20s and 30s superstar of aviation who disappeared when attempting to fly around the world – which remains an unsolved mystery. 

Little Guides to Great Lives is a new series of beautifully designed books introducing kids to the most inspirational figures from history, from Marie Curie and Frida Kahlo to Charles Darwin and Leonardo Da Vinci.
