How Amelia Earhart Became a Fashion Icon
by Jennifer Lane Wilson
This children’s book told me something about Amelia Earhart that I had not known. She designed women’s fashions. These were based on Amelia’s sense that clothes should not be too fussy and that they should allow for women’s movement. Amelia even modeled her designs.
The story of Amelia and fashion is interwoven with this story about Amelia’s love for the sky. This began when she was just a girl growing up in Kansas. Adults know that, from this beginning, Amelia Earhart became a barrier breaking pilot. This book offers children an opportunity to share in that excitement.
This title has bright, cartoon-like illustrations. They nicely complement the story.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
