The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White

The Trumpet of the Swan

By E.B. White
Level 6

My children (old and young) loved this masterfully told classic story by E.B. White, author of Charlotte’s Web. Along with great story writing and wholesome messages, this book contains beautiful description that is not often found in popular children’s books today, such as, “But one day a change came over the woods and the pond. Warm air, soft and kind, blew through the trees. The ice, which had softened during the night, began to melt. Patches of open water appeared. All the creatures that lived in the pond and in the woods were glad to feel the warmth. They heard and felt the breath of spring, and they stirred with new life and hope. There was a good, new smell in the air, a smell of earth waking after its long sleep.”
