Unabridged Audiobook

Summary:

This classic children's book by Rudyard Kipling tells the story of Mowgli, a young boy raised by wolves: his escapades and adventures with his dear friends Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear, his capture by the Monkey-People, his attempt at reintegration into human society, and his ultimate triumph over the lame tiger Shere Khan. The account of Mowgli's adventures is followed by several short stories, including the tales of the brave white seal, Kotick, and the tenacious mongoose, Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Packed with adventure and Jungle Law wisdom, this book has pervaded popular culture as the basis of many film and stage adaptations, including the popular Disney movie, and through its adoption as a motivational book by the Cub Scouts.

    I'm reading this timeless novel to my daughter every night and she loves the adventure she gets to listen to while she slips off into the nightly dreams.

    This book is very interesting. I still have a hard time keeping track with the interruption between chapters.

    Good book, probably a bit wordy for lower elementary graders. The narrators voice got a little irritating after a while.
