Read full description of the books Ben's Trumpet:
I wasn’t sure about this one at first. It’s basically a historical fiction very short picture book story. A lot of 20s slang and mood is at the forefront, which I enjoyed, but as I read I wasn’t sure young children would.
The illustrations are terrific. I love when the illustrations bleed out of their area.
However, and I’m embarrassed to admit this, I didn’t read the cues about what was going on re Ben’s trumpet. I wasn’t sufficiently observant about what the pictures were telling me. But, because of that, how this story evolves, I found even more emotionally rich when I finally did understand. What a lovely story! Much is told in relatively few words.
This book is one of the six books (five books and an alternate) chosen by the Pictures Books Club over at the Children's Books group for its March theme of music.
I’d already read two of the books, have three at home to read (including this one), and for the first time cannot get one of the books, in this case the book designated as an alternate book, which is too bad because it looks fabulous.
