Children's LiteratureColonel Eileen M. Collins, the first woman space shuttle pilot and the first woman to serve as shuttle commander writes an inspiring introduction to this book. Unfortunately, the rest of the books is an accurate but fairly dry account of women's role in aviation history. Young readers who are already fascinated by the world of aviators and dream of flying will probably enjoy this book. A few black and white illustrations break up the text but they are technically weak drawings. The authors have not included an index and this book could have used one. 2004, Pelican, Ages 12 up.
