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!
