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.
