“Captain’s Mama Surprise/ La Sorpresa de Capitan Mama is a wonderful sequel to Good Night Captain Mama/ Buenas Noches Capitan Mama. Graciela has crafted a story that blends military aviation, engineering, and career opportunities while on a classroom field trip. As a science teacher whose students are dependents of US Navy personnel, I greatly appreciate how this book honors the work of military parents who sacrifice time away from their families… More importantly, Captain Mama inspires students of different ethnicities and genders as well as English language learners that they can pursue careers in aviation. I look forward to sharing this book with my students and having them create their own stories with their parents.” –Karla Orosco, Science Teacher at Admiral Akers Elementary, Naval Air Station Lemoore in Lemoore CA
This is the second book in the bilingual aviation adventure series; Little Marco becomes the storyteller!
Below are three interior illustrations for you to enjoy. Imagine Marco and his classmates on a field trip, meeting the crew Captain Mama flies with and learning about this unique airplane and its systems, getting excited about one day becoming aviators! Illustrator is Linda Lens.
