Violet the Pilot
Evaluation Violet the Pilot in Canada is the very first in the series of children’s book series written by commercial pilot and mother of two, Bettina Bathe. In this book, Grandpa Cliff together with young Chantel and Mathias are going on an outdoor camping and fishing expedition in Ontario, Canada. Violet the pilot and her reliable animal and insect pals are hired to take the 3 travelers to their destination in her violet-colored floatplane. Violet teaches her passengers about the floatplane, takes them through initial flight treatments and delivers the travelers safely to their destination. For Violet, security constantly comes initially as she advises the tourists how to exit the airplane, protect themselves against the destructive sun reflected off the water and more.
Beautifully detailed surroundings with Canadian wildlife tucked into the images here and there will permit more interest in the pictures. The illustrator, Barbara Fortin, creates an exceptional representation of rural Ontario’s well-known “Home Country” area. Violet the Pilot in Canada provides more than home entertainment and education. The author has also devoted a portion of the sales of this book to the Heart and Stroke Structure.
