  2. These are some ways when I feel like Ivan. When I'm bored and nobody listens to me. When I'm ignored. And when nobody plays with me. That's when I feel like Ivan. I have many special friends but I'm only going to mention how they helped me. All my friends help me in a way some comfort me some help me and all are nice to me. But all of them are my special friends. And that's how my special friends help me.

  5. Sometimes I feel lonely when I am playing with stuff in my room like how Ivan is when he is in his domain. Also, I ask a lot of questions sometimes like how Ruby was to Ivan. There are two more things that remind me of Ivan and those two things are I love art and I love to hear stories. Bye.

  9. I feel like Ivan sometimes because some times I just feel like my brothers getting all of the attention. I go up to my room and sit there in till I feel like I'm ready to come back down stairs. I have something in common with Ivan we both like to draw.

  11. I can relate to Ivan because when I am at a friend's house for a sleepover, I miss my parents and I feel alone. The friend who I am sleeping over with usually cheers me up and says its OK, you can see them in the morning. I also feel alone when I am angry and I lock myself in my room. I calm down and come back out and say I am sorry and my mom hugs me.

  12. I can relate to Ivan because when I am in my bed I feel lonely because there is no noise. I also feel lonely when it is super quite because I hear little creaks. I am like Ruby because I am really curios and I ask a lot of questions. Thats how I relate to The One And Only Ivan.
