Lost love rediscovered!  Feb 10, 2010
I love this recording. I listened to it for hours when I was little and now my son can too. My lp recording was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina, so was thrilled to find it on CD. Mr. Karloff's voice is distinctivly captivating and the stories contain timeless wisdom.
A favorite for life  Jan 3, 2010
My mother enjoyed this book when she was a child, probably not long after it was first published, and she read it to me, over and over again, when I was a child. Kipling's use of language is unsurpassed anywhere, in my opinion. He taught me to love the sound of words..."the great grey green greasy Limpopo River all set about with fever trees..."-- who cannot, dearly beloved, be enchanted by that. It actually took my mother and me on a quest years ago to see that river and those fever trees. But that aside, there is no better book for teaching children to love books, reading, language, and the sound of words well placed and absolutely delicious. There is no dumbing down, and any silliness is whimsical and sophisticated. Anyone of any age who has not read this book should do so immediately.
Great Idea! I love this for bedtime  Dec 27, 2009
My kids love to listen to stories or music at bedtime and I think this is an especially good CD for developing their vocabulary and love of language. It keeps them engaged and they love it. I also do product reviews on my website [...]
The stories never grow old...  Nov 13, 2009
These stories have been a joy in my life from childhood to now in my 7th decade. A great deal of the pleasure is in the reading aloud. Children love the alliterations, the completely fanciful ideas. Parents adore the superb English -- even the crazy made-up words! Don't waste a minute and read these to your children and grandchildren. You will enjoy them as much as the little ones do...
Just So Much Fun  May 21, 2009
"Just So Stories" is a collection of short stories by Rudyard Kipling that uses elements of silliness or the absurd to explain natural phenomenon. Some might just describe them as myths. While the are easily digestible to young readers, older readers may be equally amused. From the camel getting is humps to the creation of the alphabet, the stories are entertaining.

I offer a word of caution to potential buyers. In the 1974 printing, Kipling's own artwork, which apologizes for frequently, illustrates the stories. In that printing and some others, the illustrations are out of sequence with the story and become a distraction. It is not a good way to demonstrate sequence and chronology in young readers.
