Starting today - Bedtime Story! Join us each evening for the next installment of The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. We will work our way through the book in 10 minute sections. You can simply listen, or watch the soothing slideshow that accompanies the text!
This book is recommended for ages 8+, but every child is different, so you may want to try this with your 7, 6 or even 5 yr old. Here is a helpful link to decide if the book is right for your kid.
Having spent twenty-seven years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.
Sections will be added below each day.
