Each day I read part of a book to our class. Our current read aloud book is The One and Only Ivan. This Newberry Medal winning book is a story told from the perspective of Ivan, a silverback gorilla, who has promised to protect Ruby, a baby elephant brought into captivity at a shopping mall. While the idea of reading a book told by a gorilla, does not sound universally appealing, it is a poingant book that draws young readers and more seasoned ones - reading it for the third time myself! It is similar in point of view to The Art of Racing in the Rain , by Garth Stein, which is told from the perspective of an aging dog. The more kid friendly version of the book is Racing in the Rain: My Life as a Dog and it is a great fourth grade and beyond story.

This was probably the best activity we undertook and I was amazed at how well they were able to portray the feeling of each character they took on. Each child has their own website and their own blog.
