Willems, Mo, Listen to My Trumpet. Disney Hyperion Books, 2012. pgs. 64. EASY READER.
When Piggie gets a new trumpet, he can’t wait to show his friend Elephant. Elephant, however, is not so fond of the horrible music his friend is making. Will he find a way to tell his friend without hurting Piggie’s feelings?
A cute easy reader for young children. The pictures are fun and work well with the story. The story offers great opportunities for the reader to express themselves through emotions, sound, and even playing with different voices. The text is simple, but tells a great story. Fans of Mo Willems, Elephant and Piggie books, or funny easy readers will love reading this book. EL (K-3). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Kira Moody, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
