Ivan the One and Only

  Ivan the One and Only by Katherine Applegate

recommended by Amber

Based on a true story, this poignant story is told from the perspective of Ivan, a silverback gorilla. Ivan’s home is the Exit 8 Big Top Mall. He lives there with an odd collection of animals, including elephants Stella and Ruby. Ivan’s story will have you laughing and then, in tears. A great book for teaching empathy for kids. Although this book is shelved in the children’s room, readers of all ages will fall in love with The One and Only Ivan
