In this episode of Reading the Newberys, we discuss the winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal, The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. We all enjoyed this sweet story of a gorilla, a stray dog, two elephants, and a little girl who chooses to do the right thing. Grab a bag of chocolate and some coffee and join in our conversation!
*Note: If you want to skip “For the Love of Books” and “Book News” and jump straight to our discussion of the book, skip ahead to 16:56.
