    One thought on “The Little Matador”

    1. "The Little Matador" is such an inspiring book for young children. The main idea is to show children that they may become whatever, or whomever, they choose; meaning you do not have to follow the footsteps of another person influencing you. This book shows children that it is wonderful to be a leader, not a follower. The little matador is the main character and instead of becoming a bullfighter like his father, he would rather be an artist. The genre of this text would be a folk-tale, because of [...]

    2. The Little Matador is about a boy who does not want to follow in the family tradition of being a Matador. Instead, he wants to be an artist. His family encourage him to follow in the family tradition. This book is very good at encouraging children to follow their dreams and to speak up about the tings that they enjoy doing. It is a very useful bok to use in a PSHE lesson or Geography lesson looking at Spain and its traditions. The images in the book are amazing and can even be used to inspire ch [...]

    3. What a great debut picture book for Julian Hector! I loved all the illustrations, especially the ones with the animals. That frog was too funny! :) What I liked best about the story is that it taught a lesson about following your dreams. Will the Litte Matador become a bullfighter or an artist? Read The little Matador to find out. I enjoy finding good picture books that I can use with my first graders!! :) I give this 5 out of 5 YUPIs!

    4. Can't wait to share this with my students. Perfect to go along with the #nerdcott challenge, plus the art is fantastic.Update: My students LOVED this book, especially the posing frog and the rad endpapers.

    5. Some books can be too wordy and loose kids attention, but this one has the opposite problem. Not quite enough story. The illustrations are well done and do help to tell the story, but I would have liked just a little bit more.

    6. The Little Matador is a great book that shows you can dream big! The main idea of this book is to teach about the importance of being true to your heart even when other's expect something different from you. This book shows children that when you follow your heart you can be anything you want! The main character of this text is little matador who wants to be an artist, but is struggling with his family tradition of bull fighting. In the book, it shows that drawing makes little matador happy and [...]

    7. The Little Matador is about a boy who is born into a family of bullfighters. At first he has no choice but to follow in their footsteps. However, he has a secret passion to draw animals. He pursues his dream, and his family accepts his talent and calling in life. I think this story can be use to teach students to follow their dreams and to do what they desire in life. I also like the book because it is about a culture unknown to many children in the U.S. Many of my ESL students come from culture [...]

    8. The Little Matador is about a young boy who doesn't wish to follow the family tradition of being a Matador, Instead wanting to be an artist, he is discouraged by his family and pressured to change his mind.This is a useful book to use in KS1 and Lower KS2 within lessons such as Geography and PSHCE. The stunning illustrations can be used as a stimulus for an Art lesson and discussions about what it is we like to do and our aspirations.

    9. My daughter and I enjoy this book. It is a good little story about a boy raised in a family that comes from a long line of bullfighters and he doesn't want to fight bulls. He has a talent he wants to pursue instead. It has a happy ending, it exposes my daughter to a new subject that you don't see often in children's literature, and the illustrations are very good.

    10. This book is about following your passion, even if other people want you to do or be something different than you are.

    11. So-so. This book is certainly a take off on the old and much loved Ferdinand the Bull-- only its a young matador and art.

    12. "spain, bullfighting, drawing, child who's talents aren't expected; parent support of children's dreams"

    13. Very nice. I just hope that kids who have this read to them are also read Leaf Munro's Ferdinandwhich I'd bet Julian Hector had read to HIM!

    14. Excellent debut for this author/ illustrator. I'm curious to see what he does next. The boys loved it. They also love The Story of Ferdinand, which this resembles-- in a good way.

    15. Great message with terrific and engaging animal illustrations. It would be great to pair with Ferdinand by Munro Leaf.
