Acclaimed children’s book author Johnette Downing once again pays homage to the cultural legacy of the Pelican State. Based on a song by the same name, Louisiana, the Jewel of the Deep South presents a lyrical and visual tribute to the many iconic images, songs, and symbols of Louisiana. From the stately brown pelican to the impressive black bear down to the swimming sac-au-lait and the vocal green tree frog, this commemorate picture book serves to introduce children to the many interesting and unique facts of their home state.
Red, White, and Blue celebrates the American flag by describing what it means to one small child. Using innovative textile artwork, Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton illustrates the poetic text as she explains what the flag’s three colors represent, “sacrifice, loyalty, pride.” As the young heroine pedals her bike under a rippling flag, she declares, “Our people may be of every color, but we are united by the Red, White, and Blue.” This visual treat will introduce the meaning of our flag to even the youngest patriot.
