When you’re in New Orleans, there’s no better way to take in all the brilliance of the city than to hop on board the streetcar! As you make your way down the tracks with this cheerful storybook, look out the window and see the colorful sprawl of gardens and trees in the park, then roll with the rhymes past historic homes and business. From Carrollton to St. Charles Avenue, you won’t want to miss any of the famous sights—and you’ll probably want to stop for a delicious snoball!
Don’t forget to drop down your window, because New Orleans has some of the most unique smells and sounds around. When you switch to the red line, watch second line parades with jazz in full swing and enjoy the delicious aromas of po’ boys and Louisiana spice. With illustrations as delightful as the city itself and with rhymes so joyous you’ll want to read them out loud, this book is your family’s ticket to all the wonders of the Crescent City!
