Let’s read a great book together

Students are missing their teachers and teachers are missing their students! A green book cover with a gorilla and a baby elephant on it and the words The One and Only Ivan in goldWhy not read together online? Cooke Elementary School teachers and administrators are reading books for their students – and all students – right here on our website!

Their latest project is The One and Only Ivan.

The One and Only Ivan, by Katherine Applegate, is the story of Ivan, a easygoing gorilla living in a shopping mall. Life is going just fine for him and he rarely misses his life in the jungle at all. Then something happens – he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from her family. Ruby changes things for Ivan and he sees life differently. It’s up to Ivan to make it a change for the better.
