This includes 3 of Kipling's "Just So" stories read by Jack Nicholson or Danny Glover, with music by Bobby McFerrin or Ladysmith Black Mambozo.

While I thought the music was great, too, I think some of the interludes would probably be too long for youngsters waiting to hear the next part of the story.

Still enjoying the series, but I really had a hard time concentrating on the stories Jack Nicholson read with the heavy mouth breathing music in the background. Truly enjoyed the Danny Glover and Leopard's spots story though. So neat to revisit these stories that I can remember from my youth!
