    This picture book autobiography (though told in third person) is based on the life of pilot Beverly Bass. Bass is one of the first female commercial pilots for a major airline.

    Beverley Bass's story is inspiring in and of itself, but somehow hearing her firsthand account depicted in this colorful children's book takes her story to the next level.

It's intended for children, so we get a nice, simple message of how determination and hard work is needed to achieve on...

Girls growing up today often have no idea of how much they owe to the women who came before them, paving the way for them to do whatever they love. This picture book tells the story of how Beverley Bass g...
