Joshua wants to learn to play the trumpet, but he doesn’t have one. He likes to listen to music. He would most like to learn to play the trumpet. In order to take music lessons at school and be in the school band, he needs a trumpet by Tuesday. A new trumpet is too expensive he finds out. Glumly, he goes along with Mom and his little brother to a Saturday morning yard sale. At the first house, he finds a clarinet and buys it for five dollars. At Mom’s second stop, the entire house is piled high with yard sale items, inside and out. When Joshua finds a tarnished trumpet and buys it for fifteen dollars, it turns out that he gets much more than a brass trumpet in the bargain.
