Ferdinand the Bull is like a member of our family. We’ve been reading that book at bedtime since my nieces, who are now old enough to legally drink with me, were so little you couldn’t understand what they were saying (Seriously, one of them kept asking for Tah-tahs and Tagga Milk and we had NO idea what she was saying.
