"In 2022 we're taking Captain Mama to aviation enthusiasts coast-to-coast. April is Month of the Military Child, perfect time for our unique series to reach more schools, homes, and libraries."
SAN ANTONIO, TX, April 20, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Independent educational publisher Gracefully Global Group announces they'll debut two new children's aviation books on the flightline this weekend at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, April 23-24, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Families attending this weekend's airshow will be the first audience anywhere to see the new Revised Second Edition of award-winning Good Night Captain Mama / Buenas noches Capitán Mamá. Visitors to the colorful, bilingual Captain Mama booth will have an educational experience, meet the bilingual author, and have their books signed for the children in their lives.
"We're thrilled to be San Antonio showcasing our latest title in the first-ever bilingual children's aviation book series in which Mama is flying a military airplane," said the author of her ground-breaking literature. "2022 is the year to introduce Captain Mama, who's been inspiring children and teens to take steps toward exploring aerospace careers, to aviation enthusiasts coast-to-coast. April is Month of the Military Child. Captain Mama's Surprise is narrated by a little boy who's touring the aerial refueling tanker where his mom and her crew work. What perfect timing for our unique series to reach more schools, homes, and libraries around Military City!"
Good Night Captain Mama and Captain Mama's Surprise / La sorpresa de Capitán Mamá are the first two titles in this six-time, award-winning children's aviation book series. Tiscareño-Sato was inspired to create the series by her son when he first saw her in her flight suit and called her "Captain Mamá."
Karla Orosco, a science teacher who's invited Tiscareño-Sato for multiple assemblies in her military community said, "The author has crafted a story that blends military aviation, engineering, and career opportunities while on a classroom field trip…Captain Mama inspires students, including English language learners, to pursue exciting careers, including aviation."
In addition to seeing the author's flight suits and books on the flightline, there will also be free bookmarks, including one announcing the start of the preorder sales period for Taking Flight with Captain Mama / Despegando con Capitán Mamá. This third book in series will be published this fall.
"As an independent, woman-veteran-owned publishing company, we love to thank our enthusiastic Early Supporter community inside our books," said the author. "All who preorder at least two copies at the publisher's online store will have their name (or their child's name if they wish) included. Look for our colorful Captain Mama booth at Randolph, with four flight suits hanging in the breeze, and come say hello!"
The publisher will take this inspirational aviation picture book series to approximately 10 airshows across the nation this year.
