Amelia and Eleanor Go For a Ride

Our friends gave us this picture book when they found out we were naming our baby Eleanor Amelia:

It’s about Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart sneaking away from a dinner at the White House for a plane ride, and it’s by Pam Munoz Ryan and illustrated by Brian Selznick. The story is so cute, and the black and white colored-pencil drawings are gorgeous.
Our Eleanor Amelia won’t strictly be named after that Eleanor and that Amelia, but I’m hard pressed to think of two better women for her to look up to.
