    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).

    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.
