Today Is Monday In Louisiana
On Monday, there are red beans to eat, and on Tuesday, po-boys. On Wednesday, gumbo is served, and on it goes throughout the week, each day bringing another unique and tasty Louisiana dish to the table.
“Today Is Monday in Louisiana,” based on a song by New Orleans singer/songwriter Johnette Downing, rhythmically takes children through a culinary calendar, noting a meal a day that represents the best of Cajun, Creole, African, and French foods. Includes a glossary and a recipe for red beans and rice.

This is a fun book to read or sing a long to. Sometimes, we play Johnette’s CD, From the Gumbo Pot, and turn the pages to the song instead of reading words. My son loves this book and so do the kids in my Pre-K class! It exposes/teaches the children to so many things: great story, collage art as an illustrative tool, Louisiana culture, days of the week, rhythm…. My picky 2 1/2 year old has also become interested in trying some of these foods! So, I love it!Rating: 5 / 5
