want a personalized list of book recommendations? click ask & tell me about what you've been reading lately / what you'd like your list to cover. i'll then make you a list of at least ten books with short descriptions and (hopefully) links to longer reviews by me. i'm a children's librarian so kids'/YA books are my strong points, but i'm more than happy to give adult books a shot, too.
book review: amelia lost
Reading Level: Grades 3-5
Amelia Earhart was one of the most formidable female pilots of her time, spurring her decision to be the first woman to fly around the world - alone. But a few hours into her flight, Amelia’s plane lost radio contact with the ground and became lost. She was never found. Fleming’s new biography of Earhart is great for younger readers interested in both the story and the time period.
