I’ll let you in on a little secret.
I am a HUGE book lover! However I also love to listen to audiobooks. So after listening to the whole Harry Potter series, we were on the hunt for another audio book for our daily car rides. That is when we found The One and Only Ivan.
You get to love Ivan the gorilla, as he tells you his story of friendship, struggles and the inner world of he and his animal friends. You see, Ivan knows no more than a cage in The Big Top Mall and Video Arcade as his home, with a TV for entertainment.
It sounds too sad to listen to, but trust me it’s more about friendship, hope and creating a better future. I recommend this for kids 8 years and older, and by the way my Mom loved it too!
