The One and Only Ivan, The One and Only Bob by Katherine Applegate, Audiobook reviews

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate is being made into a movie, so I thought it was about time that I read or listened to this book. I am glad I did. As well, The One and Only Bob will be released in May 2020, and the audiobook is narrated by the amazing Danny Devito, who will be the voice of Bob in movie, The One and Only Ivan. I couldn’t resist listening to it.

The Story Web by Megan Frazer Blakemore

I was originally planning to do a mini-review for this book, but as I began writing up my thoughts, it ended up being a full review. This is a book geared to middle-grades, (ages 8 to 12), but I enjoyed it as well.

These Non-Fiction books are all geared to children ages 9 and up in my opinion. They are all well written with great illustrations. Definitely great additions to libraries, home, public and school. All were requested by me to read, and review. Ratings, ideas and opinions are my own.
