Happy book birthday to My Voice is a Trumpet (Penguin Random House) by Jimmie Allen and illustrated by Cathy Ann Johnson.
From voices tall as a tree, to voices small as a bee, all it takes is confidence and a belief in the goodness of others to change the world. Coming at a time when issues of social justice are at the forefront of our society, this is the perfect book to teach children that they’re not too young to express what they believe in and that all voices are valuable.
In a starred review, School Library Journal says Beautifully painted portraits bring depth to the faces, as well as emotion to each setting.
