My book DOWN IN LOUISIANA received a nice review in the November, 2007 issue of Acadiana LifeStyle:
You know the song, “Down in Louisiana,” don’t you? Well, Johnette Downing has adapted it to entertain children while teaching them to count the animals in their habitats in the bayous and swamps of Louisiana. Deborah Kadair’s fanciful illustrations highlight the animals in simple images kids can enjoy and re-create with construction paper. A delightful gift that entertains and educates.
