Goodnight to Da Parish (Each)
Cornell P. Landry loves writing about Louisiana! The author of the widely popular Goodnight NOLA has written an authentic tribute to St. Bernard Parish that highlights the familiar aspects and attributes of this unique segment of the Louisiana landscape.
Written in the vernacular, this clever rhyming ode is an entertaining read-aloud experience for all ages. Illustrated in child-like swaths of color by St. Bernard Parish native Victoria Wisinski, this bedtime story takes readers from the map of "da Parish" to Rocky & Carlo's, Delacroix, and even "da places dat's no longer dere" including Bubba John's, Village Square, Penny Lanes, and St. Mark's Fair. Much as the original that inspired the format, Landry and Wisinski give a loving nod to the sights and sounds as they say "Goodnight to da Parish."
