SUMMARY: In the third book in the bilingual series, Marco and his friends take flight on the KC-135 refueling tanker! They see Captain Mama and her aircrew in action refueling some of the coolest jets in the Air Force, and witness what happens when an emergency suddenly arises in flight!
This 60-page hardcover book includes a glossary of aviation terms (and a glosario in Spanish), bilingual educational resources, plus a bilingual origami project to fold a paper airplane like one of the stealth fighter jets in the story!
“I can’t wait for my students, and readers across the globe, to experience Captain Mama’s third story! Young and old alike are visually and mentally immersed as they live an inclusive story of service, curiosity and courage. Graciela’s adventurous storytelling, Linda’s rich, engaging illustrations and Kiyoshi’s origami design activity all meld together to lead you on a lasting journey, with ideas that extend far beyond the end of the book.” – Ziwa Hampshire, 4th grade teacher, USAF veteran, Lexington Elementary School, Los Gatos, California”
