It’s Hot In Louisiana and It’s Raining in Louisiana by Erin Rovin
A Short Review by Rickey Pittman, the Bard of the South
Erin Rovin is an accomplished Louisiana author who first introduced young readers to her Little Laveau stories, including A Magical Bedtime Story, Bayou Beware, and A Pirate Adventure. Her books and school programs are very popular in Louisiana. Erin followed publication of these books with her popular children’s picture book, The Little Bead Tree, celebrating a custom of New Orleans Mardi Gras. Her newest board books for young readers (and parents) are It’s Hot in Louisiana and It’s Raining in Louisiana.
Both of these are great good beginning books for children. From hearing the simple poems in these books, children will learn, not only the sounds of new words, but also learn much about Louisiana’s weather. The artwork of Kay Meadows in both books is excellent and will help the young readers remember the poems they read or have read to them.
There are few books in print today that can entertain and inform the readers about Louisiana as well as Rovin’s books.
