My Grandmother Lives in a Shotgun House Hardback
Illustrated by Emile Henriquez
Through New Orleans to Grandmother's house . . . Through charming rhymes, craftsman-like images, and a sweet feeling of nostalgia, the lyrical narrative paints a beautiful picture of New Orleans' families and architecture.
A young boy recounts his adventures at his grandmother's house and the enchanting things in her home--from the old portraits on the wall to the tall ceilings.
He leads readers through the old shotgun house and relishes everything he sees, coloring every aspect of his surroundings with love and curiosity.
Children will discover the beauty in family history, comfort, and the meaning of things old while every generation will relive the joy and wonder that he feels discovering it all for the first time!
