This week we’re passing along animal book recommendations from KidsPost readers. Lucas Minc from Chevy Chase thought other kids would enjoy The One and Only Ivan,” the story of a gorilla who lives in a video arcade. Lucas said he liked Katherine Applegate’s award-winning story because it’s told from a gorilla’s point of view. The Guardians of Ga’hoole series was the pick of McLean’s Jessica Lourenco. Jessica, who has read the first two parts of Kathryn Lasky’s series, said the owls in the story “have wonderful adventures and make lots of friends.”
