   Friends always tell each other the truth -- even when it hurts!
This installment in the Gerald & Elephant franchise, Listen to My Trumpet, has Piggie blowing Gerald with her new trumpet. Gerald Winces wins. She is sadly no Satchmo. Gerald tries to think of nice things to say that will not hurt piggies feelings 1. it's shiny 2. it's loud 3. Piggie holds it well, but is of course much as she likes hearing that stuff -- that is not enough for Piggie. She wants more -- she wants to know what he really thinks about! And Gerald, being a great friend, decides conscientiously that he should tell her the truth, albeit as gently as possible. It has a fun twist at the end and again shows children, though the charming relationship between these two best friends is exactly what it is all about -- honesty, love, trust, compassion and concern.
   A great disappointment.
Back then sending. It does not have a positive swing to the pig not playing well. I refuse to read it to my young child, who loves music and adores it. The pig does essentially not sound bad and he wants it to play well. He finished at the end.
   Great for kids who like to make noises
This is a funny book for kids who like their parents to make fun sounds while reading.
   Very Funny
My son and daughter both love this book, especially the ridiculous noises! Every time we read it, they laugh and smile.
   Great Book!
My daughter and students love all his books and have added this to their collection.
   Piggie plays
In this cute story, a very excited piggie wants to show her trumpeting skills to Gerald. The only problem is that the sounds coming out of the instrument are terrible. Gerald tries his hardest to think of kind things to say, but eventually piggie forces him to admit that she is not really playing music. And then the twist comes the story. This story had less plot than the average elephant and piggie book... The noises in the middle were a little too long. On the other hand, E & P books are great for new readers and all the trumpet sounds are great for practicing phonetic pronunciation. This is not one of my favorite E & Ps. It would probably have been better with a shorter page count. Still, it is classic Mo Willems with great illustrations and a sweet, funny, true-life story.
I am a teacher of elementary music and I was looking for books for my room and found this one! When the package arrived, my 2 ten year old granddaughters were here and opened it. As soon as they turned this book, they saw it. I purchased it for my younger students but my 10 - year old girls LOVE it too! The most important step was to SCORE!
   My son's favorite books to collect!
We now own all the Piggy and Elephant books and my son can not wait for more! They helped grow his reading adventures and start his imagination.
   These books are great!
I have bought several and continue.
   Honesty with tact and wisdom
Elephant struggles and shows us how to be both tactful and honest when Piggy plays the trumpet. Older children, especially if the story is read with a lot of drama and exaggeration, will also appreciate.
