The ABC’s of the S.Y.V.


Thank you for reading The ABCs of the S.Y.V.! This sweet children’s book brings together the diversity and history that make up the Santa Ynez Valley in a fun, accessible way for children and their grown ups to learn about. From farmers to vaqueros, to Danish settlers and the Chumash, you will learn that California’s central coast is more than wine country. SYV is also home to majestic trees and rolling farmland, with vaulting mountains in the background and the sunny beach around the corner. In these magical layers of the past and present, we will take a journey together to find amazing places to explore.

This book was written for you, whether you live here or are passing through. I hope you find many interesting things about this wonderful community, but most of all, I hope this book brings you joy while reading it!

With Gratitude,
