Johnette Downing knows kids, and she knows what they like. For 13 years she taught kids music at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans. As a musician and songwriter, she’s produced seven CDs of original children’s music, and she’s also the author of four children’s books, all of which focus on Louisiana’s culture. In her book My Aunt Came Back from Louisiane, Downing adapts a traditional tune and takes young readers on a rhyming tour of Louisiana’s traditions throughout the state, with stops in Lafayette, Mamou and Evangeline. My Aunt Came Back from Louisiane retails for $15.95 and is available locally at Barnes & Noble. For more info, visit ­— R. Reese Fuller
