This week’s book for the 3rd-5th Reader’s Corner is The One and Only Ivan written by Katherine Applegate! The One and Only Ivan is a true story about a gorilla who spends 30 years alone in a cage at the zoo inside a mall. His only friend is an elderly elephant that lives in the cage next to him named Stella. Ivan has a hobby and that’s to paint! Life at an animal show can be very distressing for the animals including Ivan. A baby elephant is brought into the zoo but Stella and Ivan fear the owner of the zoo is not treating her right. Ivan sets out on a mission to rescue the baby elephant and he believes painting is the way of doing just that. Find out what happens to Ivan in The One and Only Ivan! You can find this book in the Learning Commons.
