Let the Good Times Roll in the Library!
, our imaginations went down into the bayou where we compared alligators and crocodiles, and got a gumbo full of fun French-influenced vocabulary such as Cajun, Creole and langoustine. We danced to the zydeco music of Buckwheat Zydeco and Lady Ida. We followed a map into the swamps of Louisiana and the lively city of New Orleans, discussed the wild weather and had fun making masks for Mardi Gras. Alligator Sue played a concertina in the story, but the closest we could find was a good ol' red accordion...and the best thing we learned, I think, was that our own dear security guard, Mr. Krejo, can play a real swinging tune! Bien fait, children!
