Booklist - 04/15/2014 For cogent and straightforward early introductions to famous people, you’d be hard-pressed to top the humble yet hardworking Rookie Biographies series. In 32 pages, the books use layers of info—large declarative sentences, smaller fast facts, and even smaller captions—to ease a reader’s path into an ever-deeper understanding. Every spread includes a well-chosen one-page photo that brings the text to life. Amelia Earhart benefits, as do all bios of the aviatrix, from Earhart’s effortless photogenic appeal, as she grins easily through a life during which she bucked trends as a matter of course, setting records and smashing ceilings before her mysterious disappearance in 1937. There’s no real getting into the minds of the subjects, but that’s okay—the facts, the pictures, and the back matter (a poem, life tips, a time line, and more) speak for themselves. - Copyright 2014 Booklist.
