How much do you know about your grandmother? A girl learns about the Women Airforce Service Pilots – nicknamed the “WASP” – who flew during World War II. Grandma explains how she was one of the first women to fly for the United States Army. A story that teaches history, leadership, and courage through intergenerational learning. Written and illustrated by granddaughters of one of the true-life pilots who broke barriers for women in the United States armed forces.
Erin Miller and Randal Harmon are granddaughters of WASP WWII pilot Elaine Danforth Harmon.
"What Grandma Did is a beautiful book for children of all ages. It tells the story of the World War II Women Airforce Service Pilots and the huge yet secret contributions that they made during the war from 1942 - 1944. The story of their service has been uncovered over the past four decades and this story is a great tribute to these brave women." -- Caroline Jensen, USAF, Lt. Col. (Ret.), Veteran, Fighter Pilot, and the first mom to fly for the USAF Thunderbirds
"What Grandma Did is Erin Miller's fun story about her grandmother Elaine Harmon, one of only 1,102 Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) who flew airplanes in World War II. My 9-year-old granddaughter, Emaline, "loved it." -- Sarah Byrn Rickman, Author of soon-to-be 11 books about the WASP
