Play, Louis, Play!
TITLE: Play, Louis, Play!: The True Story of a Boy and His Horn
AUTHOR: Muriel Harris Weinstein
ILLUSTRATOR: Frank Morrison
PUBLISHER: Bloomsbury USA
Learn about the childhood of famous musician Louis Armstrong in this book. It is creatively written from the perspective of his horn! It tells how young Louis worked to make money for his family and the role music played in his life.
This chapter book would be enjoyable for elementary aged children. It is easy to follow the story and enjoyable as well because it is written from the horn's perspective.
My son and I read this book together because it was on the Texas Bluebonnet list. We both enjoyed the story and thought it was well-written.
