The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate


If you haven’t read this award winning story, you should. Here’s a segment of my review here on the blog:

The One and Only Ivan raises multiple significant themes, including the idea that compassion for others leads to action and intervening on their behalf. The story suggests that expressing our creativity in surprising ways can lead to transformational experiences that bring hope and love to others. The relationships among the characters communicates the idea that our connections with others are vital, life changing and can affect us in ways we do not expect.

You will surely want to meet The One and Only Ivan, winner of the 2012 Newbery medal.

You can read my entire review here.

Trust me—you want to win this book!!

10 Comments on Children’s Book Week Kid Lit Giveaway HOP (US): The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

    • You are going to love this book! I thought it was fantastic, and actually my 6th graders and I read it aloud during English last year and they loved it too. 😀

  1. Ladies, I love the overall look and essence of your blog, and in learning a bit about the both of you, I’m going to follow since I expect your posts to be enjoyable and valuable 🙂 And, of course, I love your book choice for the giveaway! Ivan is FANTASTIC! If I win it, my daughter-in-law is getting it for her Spec. Ed. class 😀

    • So glad you stopped by and that you found the blog. We love readers like you! 😀 I think your daughter-in-law should certainly read this book–and what a good idea–an addition to a spec. Ed. class!

      • I know I told her about it when it first came out. Can’t remember if she read it. She reads a LOT and is a VERY fast reader. I KNOW she’d love this one for her students 🙂 She teaches 3rd thru 5th graders, in one classroom, no less! I’m very proud of her 🙂

  2. Great book! Love your giveaway – thanks for joining us in the Giveaway Hop. Pinning and tweeting…
