The One and Only Ivan Novel Study and Unit Plan

The One and Only Ivan is one of our favorite books. I’ve written about it before in Five Reasons to Read The One and Only Ivan in Your Classroom.

Winner of the 2013 Newbery Medal and a #1 New York Times bestseller, this stirring and unforgettable novel from renowned author Katherine Applegate celebrates the transformative power of unexpected friendships. Inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan, this illustrated novel is told from the point-of-view of Ivan himself.
