Editorial Reviews

"The Beginning of the Armadillo", dramatized by the wonderfully warm Cindy Harvey Killavey, is Rudyard Kipling's imaginative creation story - more specifically, his creation for armadillos. When your children hear the sleepy voice of the armadillo, and the quirky voices of the other animal characters (hedgehog, jaguar, and tortoise, among others) they will be captivated. This audiobook is only 16 minutes long, but little listeners will want to hear it over and over again.

My grandkids loved this story and so did their grandparents!
I hope Audible has a lot more of these Kipling stories.
