"Goodnight NOLA" - New Book and Family Favorite

As native Louisianians, we are excited to introduce a new book that has already become a favorite in our household and I'm sure will for families throughout the New Orleans area and across the country. It's called "Goodnight NOLA" and for those of you not familiar with NOLA, that's New Orleans, Louisiana.

"Goodnight NOLA" was written by a friends' husband, Cornell P. Landry. It is a 36-page hard cover book that is a lovable tribute to things unique to New Orleans, like red beans and rice, po'boys, celebrated chefs, music, historic landmarks and many other features of the Crescent City.

It was just released a couple of weeks ago and is already a hit. Check out the direct link here or Amazon and Target. I see that it is already on backorder at both Amazon and Target, but it's worth placing your order now.

We ordered it before it was released and it was delivered to our house on Valentine's Day. Our three-year-old son Jack loves it! He especially loves the first page, "Goodnight red beans, goodnight rice," and the part that goes, "Bam!" for Emeril. Thanks, Cornell for such a wonderful book for children and adults alike.

P.S. Happy Mardi Gras!!!
