I'm pleased to announce the beginning of our our new Tiger Talk Book Club Year. Since our book club starts in the spring it's a new year for us. I'm happy to have three families in the club and we're going to have a great time!
We were slightly delayed because we were waiting for Doll Bones to come in as our first book for the club. Unfortunately it didn't come in so I changed the book to The One and Only Ivan, by Katherine Applegate. It's a book that caught my eye in the library and at the book fair, and it's also the Newbery Award winner for 2013. I can't wait to talk about it with our book club. If you have any comments as you're reading post them here!
Did you know that Ivan was a real gorilla. This book is a work of fiction, but it's based on an actual gorilla who did live in a mall in Washington state. Sometimes a story just needs to be told. Check out this link to learn more about the book and author. http://theoneandonlyivan.com/ivan
