What others are saying about
Amelia Earhart, Young Air Pioneer

"Patria Press...includes a website that highlights all of the works in this series, as well as including lesson plans and activities for educators to accompany the books. Amelia Earhart, Young Air Pioneer is a welcome change from the usual treatments on the life of Amelia Earhart found in most libraries."-- Jeff S. Davis, Powell Valley Elementary School, S.D.

"This book would make a nice addition to the library of any elementary school-age child, especially girls, who have limited pioneering heroes to model themselves after. Re-introducing this story to modern children was a great idea."---Grand Prairie News, a subsidiary of the Dallas Morning News

"What makes this chapter book especially appealing for the eight through twelve-year-old group is that the author tells real stories, not fanciful ones, about Earhart’s childhood....The Young Patriots Series is meant to be an introduction to reading biographies. Earhart’s story is an excellent introduction to the series...."----Foreword Magazine, April, 1999

"Howe presents vignettes that shed light on the character development of a woman who became one of the most famous pilots in history...Intermediate grade readers will enjoy this book as they enjoyed the American Girl® and Dear America® series."----Dr. Nancy Steffel, Assistant Professor in Teacher Education, University of Indianapolis.

"Warm, delightful story portraying the simple life of a child of the times. Important addition to the area of books...about female heroes."----Kay W. Terry, EdD., Coordinator of Basic Programs K-5 and Comprehensive Graduate Exams, School of Integrated Studies in Teacher Education, Western Kentucky University.

"A beautiful book (with) a charming style, well adapted to children’s reading."----Nancy Baxter, President, Guild Press of Indiana

"I like the way the book ends because it makes you feel happy because Amelia is happy."----Fourth grade reviewer, Park Tudor School, Indianapolis, Indiana

".....Kids will find out that, at a young age, the aviation heroine showed courage, a hunger for adventure and exceptional ability. Originally published in 1950, this top-notch biography has been revised and is the first title in the new Young Patriots Series...."--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "Family Page Books for Kids."

"Jane Moore Howe (now 82 years of age) corresponded with Amelia Earhart's sister Muriel during the course of researching and writing "Amelia Earhart, Young Air Pioneer" back in 1949. The result of her first-hand interviews are authentic details throughout this fictional biography of America's premier woman aviation pioneer....this engaging story will entertain young readers ages 8 to 12. Highly recommended."-- Children's Bookwatch, Midwest Book Review
