|The Story of Ferdinand|
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I grew up performing in musicals and plays and dance recitals, so I will always be a theatre girl at heart. Halloween gives me a reason to dress up…full-out costume.
My dog and boyfriend hate it because I make them dress up too…full-out costume.
This year our family costume was inspired by the children’s book The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf.
I first heard about this book when watching The Blind Side, and I had to get a copy for myself.
A bull who loves flowers.
He’s sent to a bullfight.
All he wants to do is smell flowers.
The Story of Ferdinand is a simple story with black and white illustrations. There are no special effects, no superheroes, and no crazy villains. A classic story is timeless whether it was written 5 years ago or 50 years ago. It’s nice to know that such a story has lasted the test of time. A good children’s book doesn’t trend, it stays consistently read by each generation.
