I'm deliriously excited about the Ferdinand movie


I was a bookworm as a kid and had many favorite books, but Ferdinand has always held a special place in my heart. The tale of a big mean looking bull who was really a huge softie? I cried at the pages where people tried to get him to fight. And then there was that Disney short. I remember reading the book to my daughter.

Now there is a full-length animated movie coming out.



I am sure this is where my opposition to bull fighting comes from too. And yes, the new movie looks cheesy as a super nacho plate, but this character means so much to me that I don't care. I can't wait to see this movie. I might have to see it on my own as I'll prolly cry.

I hope the movie holds up to the book and the memories. In a moment where a bully reigns from the people's house, this movie should be a great opportunity to remind children that kindness is the path to follow.

Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
