Goodnight Aggieland is reminiscent of the children’s classic Goodnight Moon. The book and its colorful full-page illustrations authentically serve as an inspirational bedtime storybook as well as a coffee table conversation piece for any Ol' Ag. From Fish Camp to Silver Taps, each Tradition is celebrated in a rhythmic cadence that marches through Aggieland one page at a time. Written by Texas A&M alumni, the book helps insiders explain and outsiders understand the place we all know as Aggieland!

Mark and Cimbrey Brannan met in Aggie Alley at Olson field while attending Texas A&M University. Cimbrey and Mark married in Bryan, Texas and moved to New Orleans for the better part of a decade. In 2011, the Brannan’s spent 9 weeks in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia finalizing the adoption of their 19-month-old future Aggie, Zane Addisu Brannan. Goodnight Aggieland was conceived during the adoption process as the Brannan’s unsuccessfully searched to find a children’s book that would help explain Aggieland to Zane from the inside out. The Brannans now reside in Houston, Texas and look forward to watching their son learn to love all things Aggie as anyone would when kicking back to flip through the pages of Goodnight Aggieland!
