    " This is a wonderful children's book & I was glad i took the time to read the story. The Disney movie does a pretty good job of retelling the story & of course "the Bare Neccessities" kept running through my mind. "

    " I think I was a bit too old for this. I liked the white seal story the best though.

    I also caught a bit of racism in it, not too bad; but still racism. "

    " This is the first book that I remember receiving as a gift when I was a young girl and it still sits proudly on one of my book shelves. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 3/6/2011

    " Well-illustrated version of the old classics. These stories are public domain, so the reason to seek out a book version is only if the publisher has done something extra to make the book nice. They tried their best with this version, with lots of full-color and line drawings filling out the pages. "

    " Perhaps too old-fashioned for today's readers, but nice written for its time "

    " So far, I don't get the Kipling quotes. More yet to be read. "
