PICTURE BOOK: Violet the Pilot by Steve Breen

My final flight-related purchase from Washington DC's Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. This is a fun picture book. I'm looking forward to reading this with my students.

Violet is a "mechanical genius." She designs and builds all sorts of contraptions that fly. In fact, she decides to enter one in the local air show. On the way there, though, she spots some folks in trouble and chooses to rescue them, destroying her chances of being in the air show. Everything works out for Violet in the end (as it generally does in picture books) and she is a hero.

4 out of 5 stars
AR rating of 4.2
