Publishers Description
Stock up for Black History Month and Women's History Month
As a young black woman in the 1920s, Bessie Coleman's chances of becoming a pilot were slim. But she never let her dream die and became the first licensed African-American aviator. Reeve Lindbergh honors her memory with a poem that sings of her accomplishment. With bold illustrations by Pamela Paparone, NOBODY OWNS THE SKY will inspire readers to follow their dreams.

Nobody Owns the Sky  Apr 4, 2002
This book was about a young colored girl whose dream was to fly in the sky like the birds. It tells her tale about how she finally was able to fly even though everyone always was told her that she couldn't. I like this book because it involved both the difficulties of the different races and genders. The young colored girl ends up having to go to Paris to learn to fly and even though she dies in one of her flights she was still able to influence other young girls. After reading the book I felt motivated and empowered. The author teaches young to always stay stead fast to their dreams even if others around them tell them it can't happen
Inspirational  May 16, 2000
Great springboard for discussions about equity, following your heart, and beleiving in yourself. Bessie is a woman who is just now getting her rightful place in history. This book would be a great addition to classroom career, aviation or reading center.
Wow!  Mar 25, 2000
Absolutely awesome picture book biography! Told in verse and beautifully illustrated, the historical link between author and subject makes for an amazing teaching tool in the classroom! This book is so very underrated in the public's eyes. Buy a class set for your classroom!
