Books: The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate (Age: 8+ years)
Ivan, a gorilla in captivity, lives his life in a shopping mall and is only familiar with his glass cage, far away from his natural habitat, which he doesn’t really miss. However, after meeting Ruby, a baby elephant, he learns more about the wild and tries to live a life that’s different from his daily routine.

This story is inspired by the true story of a gorilla, who after more than 25 years of captivity in a tourist trap, now lives happily in a natural habitat zoo and is renowned for his art. The story is very interesting and lets you perceive the world from the eyes of a gorilla.

The story talks about not only the mistreatment of animals by humans, but also how humans are the only ones who can change the fate of animals, for better or worse. Grab the book and read Ivan’s adorable story.
