The Story of FerdinandThe Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf

If you are looking for a book that demonstrates the value of following ones own bliss, even if it means being different, this is the book for you and your child. It encourages nonviolence in a culture where violence is a sport. The Story of Ferdinand supports my view of reality; arriving in peace with ourselves and appreciating the beauty of the natural world can only serve us.

My children laughed a lot reading this with me. They enjoyed the simple black and white pictures and the easy to follow plot. Older children and parents will enjoy the poignancy of this memorable classic.
