Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling TX1010

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.

About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
