The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf

A classic! The story is simple, yet so foretelling, about a bull who doesn't want to do or be anything but himself. This is another favorite book of mine that teaches young children about self-confidence, and how sometimes having this, takes us to new places.


  1. Our sons are 35 and almost 30. My husband still quotes from this one: "Ferdinand - please do something!"

    One of the pleasures of life is how good books stay with us.

  2. That is amazing Carla - thank you so much for sharing here. I hope that I can write/say the same thing about my children when they grow up - and that they can quote from such favorites and classic books like this one.
