The dates for Amelia Earhart are incorrect-I think that will be confusing for some children.

Chantal Sigg · Jun 21st, 2019

Hey Chantal, thank you for taking the time to contact us. We have checked over the date for her first solo flight across the Atlantic and it appears to be on the date 20 May 1932. Can we just confirm this was the incorrect date you were talking about?

Royce (Teach Starter) · Jun 24th, 2019

This will be great for independent reading groups
