Description: When Bessie Coleman was a child, she wanted to be in school -- not in the cotton fields of Texas, helping her family earn money. She wanted to be somebody significant in the world. So Bessie did everything she could to learn under the most challenging of circumstances. At the end of every day in the fields she checked the foreman's numbers -- made sure his math was correct. And this was just the beginning of a life of hard work and dedication that really paid off: Bessie became the first African-American to earn a pilot's license. She was somebody. (40 pgs) Ages 9-12

Ashay says, "Bessie Coleman's was an icon, especially during a time when women were just beginning to get their rights. She was both fearless and intelligent and wanted to prove the she was capable as anyone. She achieved her dream and died to soon to fulfill her second dream, opening a flying school. Great story and the nice illustrations really compliment. Buy it today for the classroom and the library"
