The Best Trumpet Books for Kids

Before it was ever used as an orchestra instrument, the trumpet was used for signals and military purposes, as far back as ancient Greece and Egypt. There is even a picture of a trumpet in King Tut’s tomb.
Since music is such a large part of our lives, we are learning about different instruments as we prepare to attend a performance of our local symphony orchestra. We’ve also been listening to a lot of jazz–especially Louis Armstrong’s music–and reading music related books.
We are sharing our favorite trumpet themed books below. If you know of any that we’ve left our, please tell us in the comments, and we’ll ad them to our list.
