TUESDAY: Listen to My Trumpet by Mo Willems
Piggie has a new trumpet she can't wait to show Gerald. But the stuff she plays isn't very "musical." How will Gerald tell his best friend he didn't like her concert?
Another great Elephant and Piggie book by Mo Willems! I bought a copy for our school library last Tuesday when it released and by Friday I had read it to four of my classes. They all loved it - but it's a little hard to know if they loved the story or just loved hearing me try to read the trumpet sounds out loud!
4 out of 5 stars
Recommended for: preschoolers and early readers. I think the whole series is a great one for early readers to get lots of basic reading practice (my Kindergarten students were reading along as I read this one).
Cautions: Adults need to be ready to read a lot of trumpet sounds!
