Staff Pick: Bessie Coleman by P. Hart, M. Cosgrove
Who is Bessie Coleman? If you don’t know, you definitely need to check out this biography. She was the first black woman pilot. She earned her pilot’s licence a whole year before that other famous flier: Amelia Earhart!
So, if you’d like to read a biography about overcoming adversity and flying high, Bessie Coleman’s is not to be missed. The “Just the Facts” version is just full of great historical documents and pictures, highlighted fast facts (Did you know that Bessie is on a US Postage Stamp?), and great insights.
Oh! And it is 112 pages so it just meets that biography report requirement too! ;)
