How the Elephant Got Its Trunk
This is our best story ever. Beautiful illustrations, great story line, perfect standard voice Enjoy.
This story is about how the elephant got its trunk. There are several characters involved who want to educate the the poor baby elephant who never seem to listen. In the end the baby elephant learns a valuable lesson and gains a wonderful tool.
How the elephant got its trunk is adapted from a story by British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling. Kipling was born in India and spent the first six years of his childhood there. After about ten years in England, he went back to India and worked there for about six-and-half years. These stories were written when Kipling lived in Vermont, USA.
This book is interesting. It may not be optimal for US parents with spanking. It is funny with a boisterous animal asking tough questions.
too much spanking
A lot of wasted reading about a elephant child getting spanked for asking questions, not what I want to read to my toddler or any kid for that matter.
