Cute, feel-good story

I realize that I am way too old for this book, and it is meant for a young audience, but I was just so entranced by the story I don't care. It is so cute and special, and will make you feel for these fictional animals as if you have been with them their whole lives. The only problem I had wasn't with the actual story, it was with the book. I ordered a "like new" copy and got a book with a torn cover and obviously mishandled by whoever had it before. I realize I ordered this way too long ago to make a difference, however, and still loved the book despite!

The One and Only Ivan is our favorite children read aloud book so far..great book

Kids will love the book, while parents will like the message, great book..

Best book
