The One and Only Ivan
by Katherine Applegate
Ivan, a silverback gorilla, has lived in a glass, metal, and concrete enclosure at Big Top Mall for 27 years. Bored, he watches TV, draws pictures, and enjoys the company of Stella,an elephant, and a few other friends. After a baby elephant arrives, Ivan makes Stella a solemn promise that seems impossible to fulfill. Ivan's story is based on the life of a gorilla now living at Zoo Atlanta.
Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don't)
by Barbara Bottner
With the help of Miss Brooks, Missy's classmates all find books they love in the library - books about fairies and dogs and trains and cowboys. But Missy dismisses them all: "Too flowery, too furry, too clickety, too yippity."
Still, Miss Brooks remains undaunted. Missy will find a book to love, even if they have to empty the entire library. What story will finally win over this beastly - er, discriminating - child? One about an ogre, of course!
I Want Two Birthdays!
by Tony Ross
The little princess wants two birthdays!
What about four?
