Good as I remembered!

Bought this book for my daughter who adored the book and character as a child. Upon receiving the book , I took the time to re-read it. It is still as charming as I remember. Would still recommend it for children today.

a lesson in individuality

This book, its story and illustrations have survived 50 plus years and still retain their charm. This is the story of a bull who does not want to fight like the others in his herd and would rather sit quietly with his flowers. The black and white illustrations are detailed enough to hold the reader's attention and the long lashes of Ferdinand and the face of the unlucky bumblebee demonstrate the power of illustrations when it comes to conveying characters in children's literature.
This book provides a wonderful lesson in individuality and would fit well into a curriculum about self-esteem.
