Shortly afterwards, her princess hair was gone and she loudly decided she wanted to be a vet (since Amelia Earhart could do what *she* wanted.) It's very clearly written, with inset panels providing extra context and thus possible to skip for a younger reader. The text itself would be fine for a 6-year-old, I think and reminds me a bit of the old Ladybird biographies.
The book presents Earhart as she was - a woman of her time, making her way, and embracing 20s style Feminism but still feminine, avoiding early marriage, and marrying on her own terms; happily ever after for her was a husband who supported her in *her* adventures.
From a parent's point of view, the nice thing about Earhart was that she designed clothes, set fashions, but could do so because she flew planes and had adventures. For younger female listeners and readers she's a fantastic bridge from Barbie to something less saccharine, more assertive, more covered in engine grease - because Amelia didn't care...
Oh, and, the book doesn't let Earhart's disappearance overshadow the story; what matters is how she lived, not how she died.
