Welcome to our Community!
We welcome you to the Captain Mama community, where we create children’s literature in English and Spanish that:
inspires & educates
all children about cool, well-paying technical careers like aviation that combine science, math, engineering, technology and higher education and
it’s not about food or animals
like too many bilingual books published by the big boys in NYC.
“This gentle book reminds us that women served and will continue to serve their nation in military uniform. The Captain Mama story provides a wonderful role model for both little boys and girls. It’s a great read for families who manage the delicate stability of work and home.”
Kimberly Olson, Colonel, (retired), US Air Force, Author of Iraq and Back: Inside the War to Win the Peace
