Award-winning author, entrepreneur, speaker, and Latinnovator Graciela Tiscareño-Sato wears many hats, but as a decorated Air Force veteran, Graciela has also earned many patches. In her new book, Good Night Captain Mama, Graciela puts on her author hat to share with readers the stories behind the many patches that she–Captain Mama–wears as a proud member of the U.S. armed forces.

Inspired by a conversation that she had with her son Kiyoshi, Graciela wrote Good Night Captain Mama as an ode to–and reminder of–military madres everywhere who wear their uniforms and patches proudly, and the children who regard them as heroes.

Written in both English and Spanish, Good Night Captain Mama captures a tender moment between mother and son, in which Captain Mama is able to explain to her curious son the significance of her “costume”–or uniform. Each of the patches on Captain Mama’s uniform represents a piece of Captain Mama’s identity; Captain Mama is part of  a squadron, a captain in the Air Force or as a service member of the United States of America. Captain Mama is all of these things, in addition to being her son Marco’s mama.  Marco couldn’t be prouder!

Good Night Captain Mama is a sweet story that reminds parents to share their stories about their lives and their accomplishments with their children. Parents can very well be their children’s superheros, heroines and role models. So, whether you’re a captain in the military, a doctor, an office worker or the captain of la casa, share your stories with your children and read Good Night Captain Mama to them too!

Good Night Captain Mama will officially debut this July, however you may pre-order your copy of the book now!
