Storytime: Gumbo, Fried Cheese, the Saints and Drew Brees by Patricia Reece

Every year when the leaves start to fall, I visit my Grandpa and we have a ball.

With snoballs, streetcars, beignets, and the Dome, New Orleans is a place he is proud to call home.

fleurdelisSo begins this adorable love letter to New Orleans, as told through the eyes of a child who is visiting her grandfather.

Many of the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and wonderful attractions of the city are featured in this aural tour of New Orleans. From the Audubon Zoo to City Park, from the Mississippi River to the Lake Pontchartrain, Patricia Reece of Slidell, Louisiana gathers up the aspects of New Orleans that she has learned to cherish through a loving, nurturing relationship (and friendship) with her grandpa.

For Patricia and her grandfather, nothing can beat Gumbo, Fried Cheese, the Saints and Drew Brees.
