I thought this book would be a little story heavy since it s a picture book, but it s mostly a history lesson My 4YO likes it, though She told me that Amelia Earhart was the first women to fly over the Cacatic Ocean Atlantic , so she s learning I think it s a good educational book, but not one that I, as a parent, would enjoy reading over and over. My whole family loves these books, and Amelia Earhart is my daughter s current favorite We own about seven of the books in this series, and each one is as good as the next We are planning to collect the whole series They are a second or third grade reading level but the information is presented clearly enough that younger kids can grasp the essentials At the same time, there is enough substance that older kids have plenty to think about Adults can learn something too I recommend this book, and the whole series, very highly. I ordered this book to read with adults with special needs They really enjoyed learning about someone they ve heard of Great pictures to keep them interested and enough story give actual facts.
