A Horn For Louis
Seven-year-old Louis Armstrong was too poor to buy a real horn. He didn't 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 didn't 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, it's perfect for the rest of the year, too!
