Book Discussion Guide: The Trumpet of the Swan by E. B. White (Digital Download)
Sam Beaver is an adventurous boy who loves going to Canada with his father to fish, explore, and observe nature. One day, Sam sees a pair of trumpeter swans making a nest on a small island in the middle of a pond. Every day, Sam goes back to watch the nest with the eggs and how carefully the swans care for their family. When the six cygnets finally hatch, one of them, named Louis, has a problem. He can’t say anything. Louis is often lonely because he can’t talk to his family. The Trumpet of the Swan is a classic tale of overcoming disabilities and succeeding against overwhelming odds.
