Like the rest of his family, Louis is a trumpeter swan. But he can’t trumpet joyfully, he can’t even make a sound. His father sends him a real brass trumpet… A tender story which helps children see commitment and love from family members, and how to overcome when one is faced with challenges. It helps children to overcome any form of handicap, as this message is imparted throughout this book. The boy in the story has a journal and this encouraged my daughter to begin a nature journal.
