PreSchool-Grade 1?Three little bears all receive musical instruments for their birthdays. Theodore and Oswald have immediate success playing the drum and banjo respectively, but Sebastian can only produce a "Pfffft" on his trumpet. No matter how hard he tries nothing resembling music eminates from his horn, and he screams in frustration. Receiving encouragement from his mother, he tries again the following morning and finally produces a sweet sounding "TA-TA-TA-ROOOOOOON!" The brothers then proudly play "Happy Birthday" for their parents. Imai's gouache paintings spill across the pages, depicting white bears against colorful pastel backgrounds. While not a first purchase, Sebastian's Trumpet will strike a chord with both aspiring and frustrated young musicians. Try pairing it with Lloyd Moss's Zin! Zin! Zin! (S.&S., 1995) as part of a raucous, musical story time.?Tom S. Hurlburt, La Crosse Public Library, WI
