" I have always loved this story. It encourages curiosity and allows the child to imagine themselves in control without encouraging rebellion like so many current authors do. This is a beautiful edition with great watercolours and ink drawings. " said.

" I knew the story from when I was a child myself, but for the life of me could not remember the title and my Google searching surprising yield the wrong results. But one day this appeared on the NOOK store for free and I was so happy to have found the title and the story again. " said.

" This is an adorable fable that tells a story of how the elephant might have gotten it's beautiful trunk. I got this book free with my Nook and it had the options of setting it the it would read aloud. The narrators voice and the beautiful illustrations are spot on! " said.

" I found this story quite bizzar..All that smacking of the baby elephant was just out right odd to me. I knooow this book was writen in a very different time but it just grated on me :/ I woudn't want to give this book as a present to a small child. " said.

" I got this book free with my NookColor, and my kids love it!!! It has come in handy while waiting in line at the grocery store, or in the waiting room at the doctor's and orthodontist. It is wonderfully illustrated with very bright pictures. All Rudyard Kipling stories are classics, but having this on a "Read to Me" ebook is wonderful. " said.

" Read the Color Nook version of this. It is a simplified (read: edited) version of the original story, which some adults may not appreciate, but it's exactly the type of book most young kids enjoy; it has rhythm and repetition and several funny moments. It would make a nice storytime book for librarians to use if it was a print version. " said.

" The story my mother used to read me most often, because I asked for it again and again. I loved the sheer fun of it, the music and the rhythm of the words. It was subversive too. Still my favourite story.http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-ent... " said.

" "The Elephant's Child" can be a good book for introducing your students to the idea of a fable. The story tells of how an Elephant gets it's long trunk. As an activating strategy, I would read this to my students and explain the concept of a fable. Can they think of any other fables? As a class we would brainstorm all the fables we can think of and then investigate how fables are written since they all follow a similar format. " said.
