This popular holiday book is now available in a sturdy board edition for very young children. The original text has been simplified to focus on the merry lyrics in this fun take on the classic Christmas song. It’s a happy, festive way for families to celebrate the place where they live.

Enjoy Christmas in the Pelican State, where you can see such fun Louisiana things as 12 strands of sparkling Mardi Gras beads, 9 Cajun crawfish, 4 riverboats, 2 baby gators, and a pelican in a cypress tree!
