About the Author

Local author Annette Lucksinger has made her home in Austin, Texas, for the past 20 years. She is a mother of two children, who not only inspired the guidebook but who have proven to be great fellow adventurers. Her favorite place to be is outside with kids.


"This is an engaging, inspiring guide to Austin fun. Full of great ideas and hidden treasures. A boredom-buster that will inspire many family adventures." --Kami Wilt, Director, Austin Tinkering School

"So many entertaining and engaging opportunities!" --Kelly Willis, Singer-Songwriter

"A fantastic resource for parents!" --Staci Gray, Austin-based Children's Musician

"Lots of great tips are packed into this one handy book. It's de nitely nice to have over 100 family-friendly outings laid out in one place, not to mention the fact that the entries are also cross- referenced by interest (think airplanes, sand play and stargazing, for example), optimal age range and location." --Nicole Basham, LiveMom.com

"If I had a time machine, I'd return to my early parenting days just to have the chance to use this fun, far-reaching and exceedingly helpful guide to Austin!" --Liz Garton Scanlon, award-winning author of Caldecott Honor book All the World

"Exploring Austin with Kids is a go-to resource for parents who want to have family fun in Austin. Annette Lucksinger has clearly done her research, and provides a great service with this well-organized, comprehensive guide to kid-friendly fun in Austin." -- Jill Coody Smits, author of Expedition Austin: A Kid's Guide to the Weirdest Town in Texas

"Exploring Austin with Kids is just plain fun!" --Ryan Spencer, Director, Children in Nature Collaborative of Austin (CINCA)

"I'm at that awkward stage of parenthood, with my children old enough to make and act on their own plans but with no grandkids just yet. Exploring Austin reminded me of places and activities

I loved sharing with my kids when they were younger. Usefully organized from several perspectives, this is the guide I so often wished my family had, will happily recommend to ATX parents and out-of-towners alike, and expect to get plenty of use of myself." --Chris Barton, author of New York Times bestselling Shark vs. Train, Whoosh!, The Amazing Age of John Roy Lynch and other children's books
