“Graciela was at the center of the action at our city’s Festival Latino. Families joyfully received copies of her books, given attentively and signed to them in person. Graciela was at ease while being mobbed by families and managed to make each child feel heard and appreciated. Her books will inspire warm feelings of togetherness when children reread them and remember the special time they shared with family and friends meeting a Real Live Author. Our community was thrilled that Graciela was a feature of the event! Thank you for your service to this country, as well as your service through education to other veterans. It was an honor to meet you.”
Millie Barriger, Librarian, Albany Public Library and Co-Chair Linn County Linn-Benton Hispanic Advisory Committee
“Air Force Graciela Tiscareño-Sato, author of the award-winning bilingual children’s books Good Night Captain Mama and Captain Mama’s Surprise joined our Strong Libraries, Strong Communities Measure M booth. Her activities attracted many families to our booth! We were able to reach more families and advocate for increased library and recreation services in Stockton, CA. She provided a craft activity and an interactive reading of her Captain Mama books, complete with her Air Force flight suit for the children to wear. Mrs.Tiscareño-Sato has a wonderful energy which the children were drawn to immediately. The families enjoyed her inspiring story! We’re thankful to have her support and look forward to working with her again in the future.”

“Thank you for this wonderful book series. My husband, son and I meet you at the Stockton Family Day. Thank you for really talking to us and allowing my son to try on your flight suit and take few pictures with you. When we got home that night my son wanted me to read both books. I love them because they are written by a working mom, speaking about more than the important things at home. The explanation of your uniform in the first book and flight crew along with parts of the plane in the second book were eye opening for me too. My husband is bilingual and is able to share these stories in Spanish also. Again Thank you for your service to our country and now to our children.”
“Thank you so much Captain Tiscareño-Sato for such a fun and amazing memory. You truly are an inspiration to the future generations. You absolutely made Travis’s day today, and like you said, it is something that he will carry for the rest of his life. Thank you for all that you do and for the sacrifices that you have made for our country.”
“What you have chosen to do in life outside of your career is nothing short of amazing. Not only does it show children what they can grow up and do, but I am positive that your books will help families of children with active duty and deployed parents. A lot of the time the children suffer on military installations in the sense that their parents are constantly gone and they lose the feeling of pride in knowing what their parents do. We feel that your books can and most likely already do reignite that pride, that belief, and helps children understand and cope with the sacrifices that military parents need to make for the greater good of the mission. It was such an honor to meet you, your kindness and legacy will continue on long after we are called home.
Travis said that you were his favorite part of the show and to say thank you for treating him so special.”
