    1. “Gladys Goes to War” by Glyn HarperFascinating story of a pioneering woman. Born in Australia, lived in New Zealand, worked as a school teacher in Napier, and was courageous in her wrk helping soldiers in the Great War. She was the first woman in New Zealand to earn a pilot's license. ***“Young Gladys liked getting her hands dirty working on engines.”- -

    2. This is a perfectly delightful book! Based on the true story of a New Zealand nurse who simply followed her dream to drive cars, and trucks and even fly a plane, this is a must-read for parents searching for non-fiction role models for their children.

    3. Great non-fiction book about Gladys who worked as an ambulance driver amongst other things during the war.Illustrations are great - interesting but very clear.

    4. Another great story by Glyn Harper with a leading lady. Based on a true event and a true person. Another lovely book to share with children about war and what happens.
