The Story of Ferdinand
The Story of Ferdinand - Munro Leaf,Robert Lawson

 Lexile Level: AD830L

 

This is a  book about a bull who is unlike all the other bulls in the pasture. He doesn't want to fight! The story finds Ferdinand in a pickle when he is picked to fight in Madrid, only he is distracted by flowers! Ferdinand is also an admirable role model because he is different, and he is comfortable with himself

This would be a great book for 2nd or 3rd grade, for social studies, you could teach a unit on Spain and talk about the culture of bullfighting and bulls; you could also use this book you always believe in the right thing and to believe in yourself. That you don't have to be like everyone else to fit in, you were born to stand out.

Fierce Style: How to Be Your Most Fabulous Self - Christian Siriano,Rennie Dyball How I found this book: I saw a Tim Gunn single on Amazon and wasn't sure if I wanted to buy it so I read a few reviews. Most said it was a shortened version of his full length autobiography/advice book. But then reviewers were mentioning this book. So I clicked over to Fierce Style and read reviews that were saying how they were surprised at how down to earth and humble this book is and what wonderful advice he gives for every size and price range. So I ordered it from the library.

This book is FIERCE! I just loved it! He gives great advice for pretty much everything from style to taking chances in life to living with downfalls. Just wonderful and from such a young man! (I'm 50 by the way.)
