Confetti Park

Aug 26, 2016

In this episode of Confetti Park, I am delighted to share the story of the Ten Little Crawfish, marvelously narrated by the author, Melinda Taliancich Falgoust.

Ten little crawfish, swimmin’ in da swamp.
One thought he heard some Zydeco and
stopped to dance and stomp….

This is Melinda's brand-new counting concept board book that someday will be on the shelf of every Louisiana kid. Join the ten little crawfish as they count down through the Crescent City and some of its best-known landmarks.

We are so lucky to have Melinda read it to us!  The New Orleans-based author and illustrator is currently taking pre-orders for this adorable and entertaining book through IndieGoGo. Be among the first to get it. (I think it's going to be a classic!)

  • With its ten, tasty crustaceans, the savory silliness appeals to a young reader's developing sense of humor and helps them create a positive association with books.
  • The patterned text also makes it easy for preschoolers to jump in and participate.
  • The sights and sounds of New Orleans encourage young children's fascinations about the world around them and lets them know the things they love can be found in books!
