We have several new books on the shelves that are perfect for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers!
In Santa is Coming to Louisiana, a new release (October, 2012) by Steve Smallman and illustrated by Robert Dunn, Santa has his presents packed and is ready to visit the children of Louisiana while flying over St Louis Cathedral, Bourbon Street, the Superdome, and other landmarks throughout the state. Geared for Ages 4 and up.
In The Legend of Papa Noel, by Terri Hoover Dunham, it’s too hot and humid in the swampy bayous of Louisiana, so Papa Noel rides the rivers in a boat pulled by eight alligators with a snowy one named Nicollette in the lead. Papa Noel must brave a foggy Christmas Eve to deliver presents to children throughout Southeast Louisiana in this colorfully inventive Christmas tale.
Christmas in New Orleans, from local host and producer Peggy Scott Laborde along with John T. Magill, is a fascinating look back at how the holidays have been celebrated in New Orleans from the 1800s through present day. You’ll love this exploration of holiday customs and memories in the Crescent City!
Kermit Ruffins’ CD, “Have a Crazy Cool Christmas,” presents New Orleans’ fun-loving trumpeter at his holiday best with his swinging take of 13 Christmas songs including such standards as Silent Night and Jingle Bells plus the original and timely A Saints Christmas. Kermit’s Christmas CD will liven up any holiday gathering!
