The thing I will take away from our time in Louisiana will definitely be Mardi Gras. I’m having so much fun sharing the fun with you. I as noted in this post, one parade down and I’m already looking at a few more this coming weekend. Oh baby, it’s Mardi Gras season! I was so excited to find some great reads for the kids on the subject too. I’m sharing some great titles of Mardi Gras books for kids today. Let’s get them in the season and let the good times roll, while we work on our reading. *Please note the links are affiliate links!* Thanks!
