    "I wanted a book for my kids that would teach them about tolerance and ended up buying The Story of Ferdinand. It's a pretty interesting picture book, but it turned out to be more about being peaceful and not wanting to harm anyone than about being tolerant."

    "Disney, Dr. Seuss and other books likely come to mind for any best beautifully illustrated picture books. Ferdinand is the world's most peaceful little bull. As long as you do not get the abridged version which is widely derided for cutting to much, it is becoming a classic on its own. So much so that it has made it to the movies. "

    "I'm not sure about the 'progressive' definition in the topic, but this interesting story by Munro Leaf certainly slides nicely into the discussion of best children's books. Ferdinand, a laid back non-fighting bull is the main character and would rather lay in the shade than to engage in the activities of the other bulls. Kids will enjoy."

    "The classic children's picture book The Story of Ferdinand is a book that I really enjoy have my kids read. It's a wholesome book and show that everyone is different."

    "I loved this when I was a child and got it to read to my small children. It is weirdly shorter than I remember. I can't figure out what was cut out, but I know this is not the same story I remember."

    "This book is an adorable story of a peace loving little bull. While simply written, the story is embellished with wonderful pen and ink drawings. However, this abridged version leaves out many of the original works and is not the quality original illustrated story I had expected."

    "Successfully gives an example of a highly rated children's book from the 1930's. However the prompt asks for multiple books so a more appropriate example would have been a list of children's books or even a ranked list of the best 1930's children's books."

    "This book has been around for ages and, at least in my family, has become a tradition of sorts. This heartwarming tale of a bull who was the biggest and strongest of his herd but wanted nothing more than to stop and smell the flowers is definitely a timeless classic. I enjoyed it as a child and I hope my future son will enjoy it one day as well!"

    "The Story of Ferdinand is a children's book discussed in The End of Your Life Book Club. It is a picture book about a bull and his desire for peace. It is a great story for young children as it teaches the lesson that it is okay to be exactly who you want to be and not what other people expect you to be."

    "The Story of Ferdinand is a classic book which teaches lessons every child needs to learn. Ferdinand is a young bull who is expected to do something (bullfights) but he just doesn't have the heart for it. Ferdinand is a peaceful young bull and doesn't want to be violent. The book captures the essence of choosing between what is expected of you although it may be wrong, and stepping up and doing the right thing. For this reason, The Story of Ferdinand would be an excellent childrens book for second grade Christians. "

    "The Story of Ferdinand is a children's picture book written by Munro Leaf. This older classic book follows the story of a bull names Ferdinand who doesn't want to fight in bullfights. A book about peace that all children can enjoy."

    "I personally think this is a good book for not only 2nd grade Christians but 2nd graders of any religions.The story of Ferdinand resonated within me and showed me just how truly brutal bullfighting can be."

    "The Story of Ferdinand is an absolute classic and must read if you have children. It's cute, adorable, and just perfect. I love reading this to my son. "

    "Ferdinand the bull is the age old tale for children about a friendly bull who wants to avoid bullfighting. The Story of Ferdinand was written by Munro Leaf and was first published way back in 1936. Children have enjoyed this book going back 80 years and children today would enjoy the book just as well. "

    "A bull that does not want to fight! Scandalous! Ah!...but Ferdinand is not your normal bull. He just wants to be at piece and make friends. A great picture book for children."
