The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf


The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf. A classic. Every child needs to hear about the flower-loving bull who stays true to his gentle personality. He’s so very different from the other bulls, but that doesn’t bother him in the least. Ferdinand is 100% comfortable with himself! Even his mother recognizes his happiness is more important than fitting in. The world needs more picture books that promote peace ✌️ Also, who doesn’t love learning about history & other cultures?

Did you see the movie, “Ferdinand”? How did it compare? I haven’t seen it yet, but I usually agree with the common opinion that books are the better version of a story. Not always the case, though.

Is there a movie you prefer OVER the book? I stand by the movie version of A Little Princess (based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett). MUCH more satisfying ending.
