24th July Amelia Earhart (1897 - 1939)

I have a daughter who has always been fascinated by flying. In primary school whenever there was a free-choice project, she would always do hers on something to do with flight and it always included a model that she made. Photos of one of these projects which was about Amelia Earhart made it to the regional newsletter for schools so no wonder she read everything she could get on Amelia then and since. My library had some picture books that she used to start off her research way back then. They were:
I Wish I Had Flown the Atlantic With Amelia Earhart by Leonie Young, Avril Jenks and Tohby Riddle
Amelia Earhart: Alone Across the Ocean by Leonie Young, Avril Jenks and Tohby Riddle
Mysterious Journey: Amelia Earhart's last Flight by Martha Wickham and David Lund

But now you can add some new ones:
You Can't Do That, Amelia! by Kimberly Wagner Klier and Kathleen Kemly
Flying Ace: The Story of Amelia Earhart by Angela Bull
Amelia Earhart: A Biography by Tanya Lee Stone
Night Flight by Robert Burleigh and Wendell Minor
