The Elephant's Child is one of the wonderful Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling. One little elephant was insatiably inquisitive. He asked so many questions that all his relations spanked him. They all spanked him and told him to hush

But there was one Elephant - a new Elephant - an Elephant's Child - who was full of 'satiable curtiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions. And he lived in Africa, and he filled all Africa with his 'satiable curtiosities

And he lived in Africa, and he filled all Africa with his 'satiable curtiosities.

ARE
A good children's book. It is about curiosity, discipline, adventure, and a bit of revenge.

one of my children asked me about it, so I had to get another copy for my Grandchildren, as it meant a lot to us all. Very much talent with Bobby McFerrin's vocal gymnastics accompanying Jack Nicholson's reading of the classic story we all know. ;-)
JUST DO IT
This is a wonderful story! However, the book itself is extremely poorly made. The pages fall right out, there is no binding what-so-ever. Am terribly disappointed because my two-year old son LOVES this story. :(
Ventelone
The "book" is a flimsy paperback, and the illustrations are minimal, but it's impossible to ruin this great story. The good old hardcovers seem to be out of print. To the pc reviewers who are bothered by the spanking: Oh for goodness sakes!
Tejora
I have loved this story all my life!
Malodred
Given as part of shower gift! One of my child's favorites.
Risinal
I love, love, love this book. I can still remember my mother reading it out loud. Now I get to read it to my daughter and it has the same effect it had on me all those years ago. The illustrations are enchanting, very clear and full of life and color. The verse of this classic just-so story is one I remember today. It is very sing-song and rhythmical which catches a child's attention and keeps them interested through the entire book. It is a relatively long picture book but my 18 month old will sit through the entire one. The elephant gets spankings through out the book so if this is something you vehemently dislike, not the book for you.

I have loved this book for over twenty years and hope to one day pass it on to my grand and great-grand children.

This book is not necessarily politically correct so using it in a classroom setting may be risky. However; it is a classic and beautifully told and illustrated.
I was so glad to see this was still available. I bought this back in the late 80s for my daughter who will be 30 this year. I kept the book & cassette tape but wondered if I could buy it as a gift for my grand-nephew. It is magical. Bonus: a great way to keep children (and grownups) quiet & happy in the car. There are other books in this series with recordings of famous actors (Meryl Streep included) reading the stories. They were all good, but this was me and my daughter's favorite.
