Orphaned as a baby, human-boy Mowgli is adopted by wolves, befriended by Baloo the bear, and educated in the wonders and dangers of the Indian jungle. But the adventures of The Jungle Book don't end with the young man-cub and his unusual new family. Through tales of Kotick the White Seal, Rikki-tikki-tavi the mongoose, and others, listeners learn about courage and survival, rules and order, principles and morals, coming-of-age, and the thrill of self-discovery.
Rudyard Kipling's fables reflect both his childhood in India and his vivid imagination, while exploring the relationship between civilization and the wild.

Straight From the Horse's Mouth
Kipling uses personification to put words in the animals mouths in this collection of short stories. It is a set of allegories, like Animal Farm by Orwell. But to a child reader it is like a primer for life. I highly recommend this classic for all ages.
