Book review
This book is amazing! It is a great reminder for today's girls
that they can be anything they want to be, regardless of their ethnicity, if they set their minds to it.
This is the story of one on Tonga's first female pilots.
I highly recommend it!

Book review

This book is very good. A great way to teach children about New Zealand history. It also teaches the values of mercy and forgiveness, which is an added bonus. I really recommend it.
