In recent years Kipling's works have found new acclaim as a vibrant source of literary and cultural history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Just So Stories (Classic Literature With Classical Music. Children's Favorites)?
Things Every Child Should Know Mar 7, 2008
As a child I read these wonderful stories, read them to my child and now he's reading them to his children. How can you get through life not knowing how the Elephant Got His Trunk or how the Camel Got His Hump. In these days of uncertainty, these questions beg to be answered. Even now, and I'm 60, I can quote passages from this book to unenlightened friends and have gotten some of them to read this to themselves and grand children. For so many years, Kipling was out of favor, it's nice that a new generation of children are reading these wonderful stories.
The quality lives up to the title Feb 13, 2008
The production of this fine collection of stories is "Just-So." I expected more from an MP3 recording. The stories themselves are fine... but the hissing? Try a different version perhaps.
Just So Racist!! Dec 20, 2007
"Oh, plain black's best for a nigger" from "How the Lepard got his Spots"....need I say more?? I was very disappointed with this book after so many of the reviews were positive. Let's wake up!! It's 2007 and the Era of the word "Negro", or as Mr. Kipling likes to say..."nigger" is not a charming word to describe an African/black person! Why don't we keep these types of books in a special section on racist authors, and what not to spend time reading to our children!!
Just So Stories a Wonderful book for all Dec 14, 2007
My daughter and I read this book a year ago for homeschool and enjoyed it immensly. We have moved out of country, and were not able to bring a lot things with us, this book included. However, she received this book for Christmas and couldn't have been more thrilled. It is a book that can be read again, and again. They are wonderful stories full of clever writing, great plots, and perfect for kids of all ages.
Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories Dec 7, 2007
Timeless tales of a few animal origins. Prescious, priceless! And, absolutely Fantastic when read aloud to others with different voices for the different animals, as they were to me when I was a child. I bought several copies for my children so they could pass them on to thier children as well.
