Good Night Captain Mama is a bilingual picture book of approximately 850 words, 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. [peek at illustrations here]
The patches’ symbolism helps aviator Mama explain what it means to serve in the U.S. Air Force. Story was inspired by a conversation between the author and her preschooler.
Captain Mama's three children enjoy some cockpit time in the tanker.
