It has been 73 years since Amelia Earhart disappeared over the pacific ocean. On July 2, 1937 she and her navigator Fred Noonan were last heard from during there attempt to go around the world. I found this terrific book that tells the story of this trailblazing adventurer.
Amelia Earhart: The Legend of the Lost Aviator by Shelley Tanaka and illustrated by David Craig is a beautifully illustrated book that tells the story of famed aviator Amelia Earhart. Even though it is a picture book the writing is geared to the older child. I loved how photographs are used as well as wonderful full color illustrations. I also liked the sidebars that gave more explanation and quotes. Amelia Earhart is such a fascinating subject to read about and this book gives quite a lot to learn.
