Publishers Description

Gold/Honors Award Winner2007 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Children's Products

"Kadair's homespun collages . . . prove to be a tasty medium . . . Youngsters may well be inspired to put together their own art projects celebrating their favorite dishes."-Publishers Weekly

"A pleasing addition to Louisiana lore and a fun, light note for a unit on the state."-School Library Journal

Red beans, po' boys, gumbo, jambalaya, catfish, crawfish, and beignets are foods most Louisianians have grown up eating, but for nonnatives and visitors, these new words and tastes are a discovery upon their arrival in New Orleans, Lafayette, Shreveport, or Baton Rouge. In Today Is Monday in Louisiana, singer and songwriter Johnette Downing adapts a popular Louisiana song for everyone's enjoyment. Now, kids all over the country can "come and eat it up "

Told with delicious repetition, this chronological culinary journey takes readers through the days of the week, describing one Louisiana dish a day. On Monday there are red beans to eat and on Tuesday, po' boys. On Wednesday gumbo is served, and on it goes through Sunday, when New Orleans' favorite breakfast treat-beignets-are enjoyed with a warm cup of cafi au lait. The glossary at the end of the book explains the origins and ingredients of the dishes and includes even more new words, like okra, sassafras, and lagniappe. A recipe for red beans and rice is included, encouraging readers to begin their week the Louisiana way

Downing lives in New Orleans, Louisiana. The idea for the book came from a conversation about favorite foods. In reply, Downing said that if she was marooned on a "dessert" island, she would wish for popcorn. Her slip of the tongue has led to this sweet reward!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Eccelent book!!  Apr 1, 2007
Excellent book!! Even my 22-month-old daughter can read by herself, and she loves to read again and again everyday.
Yummy in Louisiana  Mar 24, 2007
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!
