This year's Mardi Gras is going to be different. It's going to include taking a driving tour on your own to see the House Floats. Eating king cake. Watching special history programs on our local PBS channel. And maybe taking a trip to Mardi Gras World. If you have children, why not go to Amazon and put some Carnival books for kids in your cart? Books can deepen your children’s understanding and appreciation of our local traditions. Here are some titles to check out.
The little plastic baby hidden inside a traditional Mardi Gras King Cake escapes the kitchen of an old couple in the French Quarter, runs faster than a praline lady in Jackson Square and a waiter at Café du Monde.
