Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling, 1st Scholastic paperback printing, TX1010, 1974, 95 pages. Illustrated by the author.
DESCRIPTION:“These are stories to be read aloud. They are cadenced, rhythmic, and full of handsome, high-sounding words, which are both mouth-filling and ear-delighting…No child should miss hearing some of them, certainly ‘The Elephant’s Child’ for one- May Hill Arbuthnot in Children and Books.
In addition to ‘The Elephant’s Child,’ this selection includes, in their entirety, four other stories children will enjoy: ‘How the Camel Got His Hump,’ ‘The Beginning of the Armadillos,’ ‘How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin,’ and ‘The Cat that Walked by Himself.” (from the back cover)
