    Coleman is another Black icon that I've never heard of, and I'm glad that her story is being told here! Some of the rhymes were way off, but it didn't detract too much for me.

    A fun picture book biography of Bessie Coleman, the first black female pilot. The rhymes made this a bit hard for me--some were forced while others seemed to be missing entirely (come/fun, license/friends).

    A Texas-sized hero--Bessie Coleman! Beautiful art throughout the book, with the addition of being a fairly unknown historical figure and back matter containing pictures and a timeline of trailblazing women in flight. Several items I expected to see--first she was from Texas (I had to hunt to find this information) and her tragic death. Overall, a good book.

    I was so excited to read this biography about the amazing aviator Bessie Coleman and while I loved the illustrations, I found the rhyming text to be rather painful. It seemed really forced and downright awkward in places.

    Great subject, but not well-written. Perhaps writing in rhyme is more difficult than one might think.
