We had a great time reading Praline lady by Kirstie Myvett.
This book is easy to read for kids and discusses the legacy of the Praline ladies who were once a common sight in the French Quarter.
The legacy of the Praline Ladies lives on in candy shops and people that continue to make the praline candy, which is part of New Orleans cooking history.
This book is a brilliant look back at terms we have come to love in the city (shotgun house, calas, beignet, View Carre).
Young readers will go along with this praline lady as she makes her pralines, sells them from her basket, and grows her business. This book definitely inspires entrepreneurship in little kids.
Be sure to check out this book by a local author and
Fun fact: View Carre is a French term for French Quarter meaning ‘Old Square’.
The Pralines that were sent from Pralines for All Occasions taste so creamy and delicious.
