"Good Night Captain Mama [ISBN: 978-0-9834760-3-0] is a bilingual (English and Spanish) children's picture book created for children between the ages of three and eight. The main character is a young boy in pajamas. As he passes by his mother's bedroom, he sees her in her olive-green Air Force-issued flight suit. The child is curious about the colorful patches on the uniform and asks questions as he pulls each one off. His mother's answers teach him, and young children everywhere, why women serve in uniform too.
The patches' symbolism helps aviator Mama explain what it means to serve in the U.S. Air Force and why she does it. This story, the first in a planned series, was inspired by a conversation between the author and her preschooler when he saw her in uniform."
