BOOK REPORT anaheim hills mrs. jarvis picks a children's classic

The Trumpet of the Swan
By E. B. White

Ms. Jarvis chose this book as one of her favorites because she has enjoyed reading it to her grandchildren.  It is a heart-warming tale of a young boy who befriends a swan.  Although he lacks a voice in the traditional "Ko-hoh!" sense, trumpeter swan Louis learns to speak to the world with a trumpet stolen from a music store by his father. With the support of an unusual boy named Sam, who helps Louis learn how to read and write, the swan has some rather unswanlike adventures and ultimately wins the love--and the freedom--of a beautiful swan named Serena. Through a simple story, acclaimed author E.B. White celebrates that fact that we all have differences.  It is a wonderful book for boys and girls, ages 8-12.
