A GREAT READ for children.
Herein you will find twelve JUST SO tales from Rudyard Kipling author of THE JUNGLE BOOK. Tales like THE BUTTERFLY THAT STAMPED, HOW THE LEOPARD GOT IT'S SPOTS, HOW THE WHALE GOT HIS THROAT, HOW THE CAMEL GOT HIS HUMP, HOW THE ALPHABET WAS MADE and many more which will keep even the youngest minds occupied for hours. Don't be surprised if your young charges come to you with questions after reading these stories, for these stories will challenge an inquisitive young mind.
The 14 color plates and 26 BnW illustrations by Joseph. M Gleeson add stimulus to the stories as do the illustrated drop capitals in every story.
These are mainly "How" stories about animals from India, Africa and Australia plus a few tales that belong to all Nations, all with an essential moral to teach children. These twelve stories were gathered and published by Kipling over a century ago and the morals are just as applicable today as they were then.
by today's standards there are some racial stereotypical labels used, that in 1912 had a more innocent and naive meaning than if used today. We have stayed true to the original text and left these in situ. We ask you to be aware of these and to not take offence if and when you come across these.
33% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to OLIVER'S HOUSE, a non profit organisation in Benoni, South Africa focusing on childcare and education.
