The book would of been great but the recording is out of order. After about 15 minutes the book start to jump around the book and becomes incoherent.
Yes. The reading and musical dramatization were excellent. I hadn't realized, though, that Kipling's narrative jumps back and forth in time. Although I managed to follow the story, it was terribly confusing for my four year old who listened to it with me. This isn't a flaw in the story, but it is something to take into account if you intend to listen to this with young children.
I WISH it was the entire book - or at least the Mowgli stories in their entirety. The children LOVED the narration...but it skipped portions of the chapters and made the storyline jump around and caused confusion.
We couldn't listen all the way through we couldn't keep up with the story and text.
