My Aunt Came Back From Louisiane by Johnette Downing
Based on a traditional song adapted by this nationally acclaimed Louisiana singer/songwriter, this rhyming picture book tells of various Louisiana fare such as red beans, gumbo, baguettes, and alligator stew. References to these Louisiana favorites will offer children a tour of the Pelican State's diverse and unique traditions.
