Overview

"Acclaimed children's musician Downing adapts and illustrates the traditional folk song 'My Aunt Came Back, ' giving it her signature Louisiana twist."--Kirkus Reviews

This rhyming picture book offers children a tour of the Louisiana traditions of many beautiful towns and cities of the state. Based on a traditional song adapted by the award-winning Louisiana singer/songwriter Johnette Downing, the book invites children to learn the various cultural nuances of each area.

Along with the whimsical song lyrics, interesting facts about Louisiana are included on the word map. Children will learn that the town of Albany was settled by Hungarians and is known for its large, sweet strawberries, and the small Florida parish town of Franklinton is famous for its delicious watermelons. In Ruston, a town in northern Louisiana, peaches are the special fare, and in Thibodaux, it is the fili1/2 gumbo. Many more interesting facts are presented in a unique, enjoyable fashion.
