I can’t find a better way to celebrate 4th of July with my child than reading Captain Mama’s Suprise/La Sorpresa de Capitán Mamá!
I first heard of Good Night Captain Mamá/Buenas Noches Capitán Mamá a few years ago when I won a giveaway from Mommy Maestra. Since then this book has been a favorite in our home. So you can imagine my excitement to have yet another quality bilingual children’s book featuring a minority Latina mamá with her children.
We love how this book introduces children to the life of a military Latina mamá, a role often not associated with minorities especially not woman. Graciela Tiscareno-Sato is a trailblazer when it comes to becoming a voice for Latina minorities in the military.
The story is about Captain Mama’s Suprise/La Sorpresa de Capitán Mamá.
Marco’s excitement is evident when he, his teacher, and classmates step out of the bus. He’s excited to show his classmates where his mama works.
“Welcome to the KC-135 Aerial Refueling Tanker,” says my Captain Mama with a big smile. “Marco and I have been looking forward to bringing you out to the plane!” she says ruffling my hair.
That’s an excerpt of the book, and well…… the surprise, you’ll have to read the book with your children to see how it ends!
This bilingual children’s book is a perfect addition for any family or home library. The best part of this book that it’s bilingual! English and Spanish. So your child could either read it in either languages.
