The Story of Ferdinand is simply a MUST for every child. I bought to give to my son so he could use it in his tutoring service for children who were having trouble reading. But as I read it aloud...okay, to my spellbound dogs...it hit me that this story is for all of us who see life differently and who want to just be ourselves. I have never forgotten the story of Ferdinand and I'm betting everyone else who picks up this classic won't either.
I bought this book to read to my toddler. For her age it is good that it isn't too long and it isn't that busy. She can enjoy the simple artwork and simple story. I had heard about the story of Ferdinand from my husband but I didn't know anything about it so for that I wish you could flip through the book online instead of just the first few pages. When I was looking to buy it I couldn't find a better price than on overstock so that saved me some Christmas cash that I was able to use elsewhere.
