favorite book friday

i know, i know, two themed posts in a row, how annoying. what can i say? i'm a sucker for a catchy title and i couldn't resist this new blog feature. i've had requests over the last couple of months from different friends for kid book lists. that is how this idea came about. so if you can bear it, i'd like to offer this new blog feature: favorite book friday (i promise, i won't make any more...mandi's menu monday, titillating tales tuesday, wacky windows wednesday...no more i say!)



oh how i love the story of ferdinand the bull! i bought it for buddy because he reminds of ferdinand- gentle and loving, picking flowers for me all the day long. it is a wonderful story reminding the reader that it is ok to be different from the 'herd'. as one of the best children's books written of all time, it definitely deserves a spot in your home library.

Thanks for the suggestion! I just reserved it from the library since it seems that Buddy and Josiah have similar tastes in books.

I love this book. I used to teach pre-k and the kids would talk about this book for months. They would always relate things to Ferdinand!
