SACRAMENTO, CA – April 15, 2016 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Bay Area Publishing Firm Gracefully Global Group LLC announces the first public viewing of a uniquely inspiring bilingual children’s book about military women and mothers titled Captain Mama’s Surprise/La Sorpresa de Capitán Mamá [978-0-9973090-0-3] authored by veteran Graciela Tiscareño-Sato. The second book in the Captain Mamá series will be unveiled at the Women Veterans Alliance UNconference this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Lions Gate Hotel (3410 Westover Street, Sacramento.)
“I’m delighted that Graciela has selected the weekend WVA UNconference to first showcase this new, much-needed children’s literature with our women veterans,” stated Melissa Washington, Founder of the Women Veterans Alliance. “There simply aren’t enough books showing the American public, especially little girls that mommies are veterans too. I look forward to joining Graciela and sharing critical personal branding expertise with our sister veterans on Saturday.”
Tiscareño-Sato served as an officer in the active duty U.S. Air Force for nearly a decade. She began her global aviation career at Mather Air Force Base in Rancho Cordova when it was an Undergraduate Navigator Training base. Now, she’s on a new mission of inspiring young children in her first language of Spanish and in English, through award-winning bilingual literature for children ages four through eight. Through the Captain Mama character her son inspired when he first saw her in her flight suit, Tiscareño-Sato is sharing stories from the KC-135R refueling jet in which she served after completing her navigator training here in Sacramento.
The new book is now available for preorder by teachers and parents directly from the publisher here. Captain Mama’s Surprise will go into national distribution on its official pub date of July 4th.
