Rise and Shine, It's Mardi Gras Time!

Good morning, Mardi Gras floats, today is your day. This joyous book for young readers brings the excitement of Carnival to the page, depicting flowery floats, animal floats, mythical floats, and regal floats and all the activity that the floats "see" as they roll down the streets.
