Petit Pierre and the Floating Marsh Hardcover – September 12, 2016 by Johnette Downing (Author), Heather Stanley (Illustrator) (Pelican Publishing Company) (IBRChildrensBooks)

This is a great children's book! I The illustrations are beautiful, and the message is very important. Children in Louisiana (and the rest of the country) need to learn about the importance of our wetlands and coastal restoration.

Johnette Downing stays true to her Louisiana roots in her newest book, featuring a young pelican searching for his proper home. As Petit Pierre journeys across the wetlands, he asks each creature where he should live. He accumulates gifts from them until he realizes the wetlands are home to all his friends and, just maybe, to Pierre as well!
Within the luscious illustrations are facts about the denizens of the wetlands and how each reader can make a difference in preserving and protecting the wetlands for generations to come. Proceeds from this book, created in partnership with the Audubon Nature Institute and the New Orleans Pelicans, fund wetland education programs.
