    There were already two Louises in my family when I was born my mother and my grandmother, Nana, who lived with us when I was growing up So early on, I was given the name Leezie This is a name that my family still calls me Years later, my niece was born and also named Louise Then there were four of us with the same name Louise is a fine name to have except that people often spell it incorrectly Sometimes my mail is addressed to Louisa, or Louisie, or Lewis, or Lois Leezie is also tough for people to spell Names and their pronunciations have always interested me, so writing about a teacher named Mrs Kempczinski was a natural thing for me to do.I grew up in a house at the top of a steep street in Cincinnati, Ohio, the kind of street that is a big challenge when you are pedaling uphill on your bicycle My two sisters and I used to ride our bikes down, down our street, and then to the local dimestore to buy candy bars or meet up with our friends But coming home, we had to pedal up our long hill This was before mountain bikes Pedaling slowly up my street may be where I learned perseverance, something all writers need when they are working alone at their desks Writing picture books came much later after studying history in college, getting married, and raising three children Even though I didn t grow up to be a composer, I like to think that my picture books are almost songs because the sound of words and the poetry of my style are so important in the texts that I write I work very hard at my desk, revising and revising and revising, trying to find just the right words that will be beautiful or fun to read.

    Bessie Coleman was born in Waxahachie, Texas, a rural community of poor cotton pickers. Bessie loved school, especially reading and learning about numbers. She knew that with schooling she could be anything that she wanted to be. She worked hard, picking cotton, walking miles to collect laundry, and learning her numbers. When she was twenty-three, she moved to Chicago. There she became a manicurist to earn money. She read the newspaper, and listened when customers told tales about French lady pi [...]

    Bessie Coleman had perseverance!! That is for sure. She had a dream of learning and becoming a pilot. She was able to do both! Interesting story!

    February is Black History Month and I thought I would begin the month with a look at the life of Bessie Coleman. Bessie was the first female African American pilot AND the first African American to hold an international pilot license. Those are certainly achievements that deserved to be honored and celebrated.And that is precisely what Louise Borden and Mary Kay Kroeger do in this picture book biography of Bessie. Born in 1892, Bessie was the 10th child of 13, growing up in a small house in Waxa [...]

    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 [...]

    This is a well-written account of the life of Bessie Coleman. I must admit that I'd never heard of her before, so I was fascinated by her adventurous spirit and determination to achieve her dreams. The illustrations are colorful and complement the story nicely, giving the reader an idea of life back then. I would recommend this for older children due to the fact that the book describes Bessie's untimely, tragic death. Otherwise, parents can just edit that according to a child's ability to unders [...]

    Genre: Biographical nonfiction Reading level: Primary level (2-3)This book was so inspirational! I loved to hear about how hard Bessie had worked to be somebody someday. Sometime I need a reminder if you want to somebody someday it will not be easy, but you still should work hard to be somebody. Bessie truly did live a legend and inspired so many people.

    I was sitting in the library and had a few minutes before my next class. I decided what the heck, enough with the adult books for 10 minutes, and I grabbed a couple kids books next to me. How convenient this was the first one I grabbed. Very inspiring true story. This woman accomplished a lot in her short lifetime, which is great for kids too read about, but for me it helped me to realize never to stop accomplishing goals no matter how hard they are to reach. Just a little extra push I needed, a [...]

    “Someday I’ll be a pilot, small step by small step…She would fly high and be somebody.” Bessie Coleman was not only the first female pilot but is an African American female which makes her more heroic because she fought against the norms to get where she needed to be. I was not very pleased with the ending of the book but I feel that it sets a realistic tone for children; it is an encouraging book overall because it proved that you can do anything you want if you work hard to achieve it.

    I do not remember learning about Bessie Coleman in school. In fact, the only African-American heroines that I remember learning about were Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman. This book is the life story of Bessie Coleman. It tells how she worked her way from a daughter of a large, rural, single mother family all the way to Chicago, where she continued to work and go to school. She decided she wanted to be a pilot, even though she would be the first female American pilot. She ended up living in France [...]

    I loved this book! It is the inspiring story of Bessie Coleman, the first African-American woman to pilot a plane. This book follows her through her entire life. From early life in Texas with her family to moving to Chicago to going to France to learn to fly. This is the story of her brave fight to fly and the tragic outcome of a single mistake she made.

    I loved reading this story about Bessie Coleman! It was so inspiring, and the author and illustrator really brought her character to life through the descriptions and pictures. I would use this to talk about women's roles in society in my classroom.

    Megan
    This story gave a great biography of Bessie Coleman. The ending is presented to be a little bleak, but the story itself will be interesting to students. Children will be able to draw off of their knowledge of slavery and civil rights to understand this story.

    Abbey
    Fly high is a biography on Bessie Coleman. This is a really good book in that it tells a lot of information that would be valuable for students to know.

    Kathy
    Terrific bio of an amazing woman!

    Casey Strauss
    This book could be used as a read aloud in a second grade classroom, but is appropriate for grades 2-6 because of the level of text and amount of information.

    Becca Holcomb
    This is a great book for Social Studies when introducing American heros or role models. This is also a great mulitcultral story since it pertains to an African-American female pilot Bessie Coleman.
