Book Club for Kids – November Selection

Our book club for kids (ages 9 – 12) will be meeting on Monday, November 19th @ 5:30 p.m. to talk about the classic tale, The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White. Call us or stop by the front desk to reserve your copy and join us for a fun time.

Like the rest of his family, Louis is a trumpeter swan. But unlike his four brothers and sisters, Louis can’t trumpet joyfully. In fact, he can’t even make a sound. And since he can’t trumpet his love, the beautiful swan Serena pays absolutely no attention to him.

Louis tries everything he can think of to win Serena’s affection — he even goes to school to learn to read and write. But nothing seems to work. Then his father steals him a real brass trumpet. Is a musical instrument the key to winning Louis his love?
