NPR's Backseat Book Club

Ivan and Katherine Applegate have had an amazing year. They received the Newbery Medal, a Crystal Kite Award, a Nerdy Award, and a Christopher Award. The One and Only Ivan has a much-deserved spot on multiple Best of lists, the New York Times bestseller list, many state readers' choice lists, and scores of lists entitled "LIFE-CHANGING CHILDREN'S BOOKS." 

Now, thanks to being NPR's June Backseat Book Club selection, even more readers will spend time with Ivan, Ruby, Stella, Bob, and Julia. I love the idea of families around the world discussing Katherine's masterpiece and sending NPR their questions

I cannot wait to tune in next month for what is sure to be an epic and inspiring book club meeting. Thank you, NPR, for picking Ivan. 

I am giving away one copy of The One and Only Ivan

By the way, Ivan was a Sharp-Schu Book Club pick, too.
