I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
We love stories about animals and Disney’s: The One and Only Ivan: Draw Me a Story Book was great!
Ivan is a gorilla in captivity. Life wasn’t always that way, but he has trouble remembering a time when he wasn’t living in a shopping mall. In his cage, he draws with crayon and paper, gifted to him from his human friend. There is no doubt that Ivan is special. And he’s always been the star of the show. Until the day a little elephant named Ruby enters his world and shows him the significance of the place we call home.
Based on a true story, this beautifully illustrated picture books tells the sweet story of Ruby and Ivan. A tale of friendship, courage, and creativity.
My take: This is a beautiful book about animals, friendship and creativity. The illustrations are charming and the story is sure to tug at your heartstrings!
