Publisher's Description

Betty Greene (1920-1997) wanted to learn to fly from the age of 7. And with some money given to her by her uncle, that's exactly what she did.

When World War II started, Betty used her skills to serve with the Women Airforce Service Pilots (also known as WASPs). She even became part of a research project that sent pilots way up high, through the stratosphere!

Once the war had ended, she brought her passion for flying and her passion for the Lord Jesus together, and helped to set up a mission which is known today as the Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF).

Throughout her life, Betty made over 4,640 flights and served in 12 countries, landing in around 20 more.

Children will enjoy this beautifully illustrated children's biography, which can be read to young children aged 4-5 and read by children aged 6 plus.

Editorial Reviews

Every child in the world loves to look up at passing airplanes and marvel at the wonder of air travel. After reading Betty Greene, young imaginations will look to the skies with gospel possibilities in mind. I hope this book inspires a generation of kids who don't merely want to be pilots but who want to be pilots (or truck drivers or train engineers) for the glory of Christ and the cause of his eternal kingdom. -- Megan Hill (Editor, The Godpel Coalition; mother of four)

Laura Caputo-Wickham captures timeless truths from Betty Greene’s life. Captivate even the youngest child with the story of her life! -- Barbara Reaoch (Author, A Jesus Christmas and A Better Than Anything Christmas)

Courageous, entrepreneurial and bold enough to break through numerous glass ceilings, Betty Greene's passion for the Lord trumped all other barriers to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. She is a truly inspirational role model to us all. -- Linda Allcock (London Women's Convention; author, Head, Hearts, Hands, and Deeper Still)

“Betty Greene” is the true story of how God used a woman with sky-high dreams to bring people across the world to him. -- Bob Hartman (Author, The Prisoners, the Earthquake, and the Midnight Song)
