Y’all – I have a little secret to tell you. I found THE best gift to give a San Antonio kid, an expectant momma or just someone who loves our city – a children’s book written about our very own Alamo City!
Goodnight San Antonio, written by Jennifer Gaines Drez and illustrated by Lisa Carrington Voight, walks readers through the sites, sounds, tastes and highlights of San Antonio. From the city skyline to our downtown attractions, unique and historical places like Kiddie Park and the Majestic Theater, and the Mexican heritage of our city along side the royalty of the Fiesta court, Goodnight San Antonio gives local kids all of the familiar comforts of their very own city in one book. What better way to inspire your children to sit down with a book than to offer one that highlights their very own San Antonio!
Gaines Drez’s poetic words paired with Carrington Voight’s vivid illustrations bring the Alamo City to life. The vibrant colors and beautiful illustrations are like little masterpieces on each page, sure to keep your child’s attention as they flip from page to page seeing all of the San Antonio scenes they are sure to recognize. I especially love the idea of giving this book as a gift to a San Antonio native that might be living elsewhere or a San Antonio friend that is on the move to another city.
Goodnight San Antonio can be purchased online or through the retail outlets listed on the Goodnight San Antoniowebsite and we are excited to announce that Jennifer Gaines Drez will be in San Antonio in a few short weeks promoting her book! Jennifer will be at the 20th Annual Holiday Ole Market on Saturday, October 5 at their special event just for kids, Pajamas & Pancakes. Jennifer will have a live reading Goodnight San Antonio and will be selling autographed copies of the book to attendees.
