    This is great

    These are wonderful stories and the reader is one of the best I've heard.

    Our 9, 7 and 5 year olds loved them and so did we.

    Children's Stories? I Think Not.

    I read most of Kipling's Jungle Tales when I was eleven and enjoyed them thoroughly. Perhaps it was after listening to Kim recently in my Golden Years, catching the flavor of Imperial India, that I decided to listen to the Jungle Tales again. Good decision.
    The descriptive color and exotic expression seem piercingly fresh probably because we are now so far away from them. It is as Aristotle has suggested, Art has a better way of describing reality than Truth. Listen to the stories with your children, but hear them for your self.
