Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seven-year-old Louis Armstrong was too poor to buy a real horn. He didnt even go to school. To help his mother pay the rent, Louis had a job. Every day he rode a junk wagon through the streets of New Orleans, playing his tin horn and collecting stuff people didnt want. Then one day the junk wagon passed a pawn shop with a gleaming brass trumpet in the window. . . . A Horn for Louis is perfect for Black History Month. With messages about hard work, persistence, hope, tolerance, cooperation, trust, and friendship, its perfect for the rest of the year, too!

From the Hardcover edition.
