The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf

The Story of Ferdinand

The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a favorite story from my childhood. When I read it as an adult, I realized the story was about being yourself and your family accepting you for who you are. As a child, I only saw it as a goofy bull who didn’t do what others wanted him to. I think I like it better with an adult’s point of view.
