"Goodnight red beans, goodnight rice, good night pralines and Zatarain's spice..."
A fun take on Goodnight Moon that will make anyone nostalgic for The Big Easy. With references to po boys, Emeril Lagasse and the Saints, it's a delightfully illustrated book to send your child to sleep with. I especially love it because my daughter's name is Nola, so we read this book a LOT!

Forget "Goodnight Moon;" if I ever have kids someday, this is the "Goodnight" book I'm gonna read to them. It's such a cute story, packed with all the unique aspects that make New Orleans and the surrounding area great. The illustrations are nice and colorful too.

I bought this for my young cousin and he (and his parents) loved it. It's an excellent twist on Goodnight Moon for anyone who has ever visited and enjoyed New Orleans - or anyone who hopes to one day. "Goodnight red beans, good night rice...good night Zatarain's spice"
Lovely poetic wishes goodnight to things that make New Orleans unique. "Good night red beans, good night rice..."
