    • My pleasure Lorraine. It is my honor to be able to do SOMETHING. I also take a moment during my public presentations to honor Victoria. I show her picture, her USAFA graduation moment shaking the President’s hand so that many more will know her name and that she gave everything in service.

    • Thanks Mimi. Our children NEED out-of-the-box story lines if they’re to imagine bright, exciting futures and stay curious about what else they don’t yet know is possible. 🙂

  2. Thank you for this wonderful book series. My husband, son and I meet you at the Stockton Family Day. Thank you for really talking to us and allowing my son to try on your flight suit and take few pitures with you. When we got home that night my son wanted me to read both books. I love them beacuse they are written by a working mom, speaking about more than the important things at home. The explaination of your uniform in the first book and flight crew along with parts of the plane in the second book were eye opening for me too. My husband is bilingual and is able to share these stories in Spanish also. Again Thank you for your service to our country and now to our children.

    Love and respect Mrs. Anzures

  3. Mrs. Anzures, you are so welcome. You’ve made my day with your beautiful words! Your little boy stood tall and proud while wearing my flight suit! It was a special moment for me as well!

    If you’d be so kind and share the titles and this flyer with your son’s teacher, perhaps I will be honored with an invitation to his school. http://www.captainmama.com/index.php?page=for-librarians

    Also, if you’re on Facebook, feel free to share the wonderful photo at facebook.com/CaptainMama/ I’d love to see it!

    In gratitude,

    Graciela

  4. October 17-18 on Texas State University’s campus, Graciela filled three venues with knowledge, curiosity, enthusiasm and energy. We are so honored to have her back on our 450+ acre campus and in the San Marcos community to make a positive impact.
