Mama’s Bayou

(Pelican Publishing; 2010)

Recipient of a Disney iParenting Media Award

“‘Mama’s by you on the bayou, rocking you to the sounds of the crickets. Chirp, chirp.’ So begins this quiet and lovely experience of sound play and cut-paper and collage illustrations that create the rich and mysterious world of the Louisiana bayou, complete with frogs, skeeters, crawfish, gators, fishies, and a fiddle. The story ends with the hush, hush of a lullabayou. The artwork is exceptional. A short appended list of bayou wildlife and vegetation provide more information for grownups and good readers.”

…Witchy definitely rocks this house!”
