One of the first films my son ever watched was the Disney classic, The Jungle Book. Over the last few years we’ve read picture books based on the film, but we’ve not tackled the book that the film was actually based on. That was until recently, anyway. Published through Sterling Books in April, we’ve been looking at The Jungle Book and Other Classics recently.
The 286 page hardback book, The Jungle Book and Other Classics, features The Jungle Book, The Second Jungle Book and Kim is the kind of book to buy and treasure. We’ve been taking our time reading this book, as it’s really designed for older secondary school children to read independently as it really is a ‘proper book’ (my son’s words).
The stories really are classic tales and The Jungle Book and Other Classics would be a great addition for any bookcase. I know that we’re going to love discovering the words of Rudyard Kipling together and that this will be well read in the years ahead. This is a bargain in my opinion and I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link for you here.
