He is 100% right! It IS Amelia’s “little red plane”, the Lockheed Vega 5b.
And, my Little Man is just 5 years old (and has Down syndrome, by the way)! So how awesome is it that he not only knew and could say Amelia Earhart’s name, but he knew that she was a pilot AND that he recognized this plane, out of all the other planes he’s ever seen, as Amelia’s?
Thank you Amelia Earhart… for being such a memorable character and groundbreaker. The world needs more people who think outside the box like she did! And thank you Amy Adams and “Night at the Museum – Battle of the Smithsonian” for bringing her to life so my Little Man could “meet” her. Who says history has to be boring? Or learned through a history book?
TEACH to the child and he will learn!
