HARDCOVER Book 2: “Captain Mama’s Surprise”

Quantity:  

An accessible and positive portrayal of the mothers and people of color who serve proudly in the military; a good purchase for bilingual collections.” – August 2016 School Library Journal review by Mary Margaret Mercado, Pima County Public Library, Tucson, AZ [Read the SLJ review here.]

This bookshelf gem beautifully weaves adventure and storytelling, taking us onboard for an exciting insider’s view of an aerial fueling plane. Narrated by a young boy, we witness a powerful moment when the child explores his Captain mother’s intriguing workplace. The gender empowerment elements were equally as inspirational to me as to my children.” -Angelica Perez-Litwin, Ph.D., Founder, Latinas Think Big and CEO, Think Big Society, LLC
