This site comes from the home in which Amelia was born in the town she always referred to as her home town, Atchison, Kansas. The site has a wealth of information on Amelia and an email link to ask questions of museum staff.

The Young Patriots Series of children’s biographies features the adventures of Amelia Earhart, William Henry Harrison, and many more famous Americans. As kids read about Amelia Earhart building her first roller coaster in “Amelia Earhart, Young Air Pioneer,” and William Henry Harrison rescuing his little sister from drowning in “William Henry Harrison, Young Tippecanoe,” they are meeting real children who make the same mistakes as they do, play games as they do, and even disobey their parents (sometimes)! Lesson plans, sample chapters and illustrations, and educational links are organized by book subject. American history leaps from the pages of these fun-to-read books for kids!
