I have to say this book is really charming. The illustrations, the story, the characters make it an excellent read and the audio narration is superb.

While waiting in a doctor's office, my six-year-old had fun with this book. He used the nook's 'read it to me' feature, which allowed him to enjoy the story without having to grapple with the words just yet. The story is fun and entertaining. Animal fables are great, and Rudyard Kipling really gave the reason why elephants have trunks a fun spin. Read it.

When i read this book, i felt something. Not an actual object. More if a feeling. I was a little kid again. I was comforted by little things in the story. The elephant reminds me of myself. I am very curious and i always want everything to be yes or no. I get confused when i get maybes. I like knowing the plan. I dont like surprises. Books like this one are great because they are predictable. Movies are kind of predictable. Books are easier to understand. You know what the character feels, you know how you would react. This book is one if the besdt in a long time. If yoou liked this book, try Matilda by Roald Dahl. He is amazing. His words just blend perfectly together, leeavingg you eanting more.

My 2 year old gand-daughter loves this story and after a few times using the "read it to me" feature, she can now recite along with it, word for word! The perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon with her. Thank you Nook Color!

My 3yr old has me read it over and over! It's her first pick every night before bed. I have to read it at least twice before she'll let me leave her bedside! And it's the first thing she talks about in the morning. I love the voice of the man who reads it! So full of life and exciment. I'm very happy to have it!

This is a good free book... the misspelled words are part of the effect of the crocodile biting down on the elephant's nose... IT IS OK... the kids won't spell the words wrong on a test... calm down people!!!! I like this book. READ IT TO YOUR CHILDREN because children like stories about elephants. I like elephants, don't you? Elefun the elephant.....u

I really like how Kipling's classic has been formatted for the Nook. Wonderful, colorful illustrations keep my son's attention whether I'm reading it to him or having the Nook read it to him!

The story is cute, a classic fable of how the elephant got his trunk. But the illustrations are beautiful and utilize the full capability of the ColorNook. If you own a ColorNook and you have children, you must get this book.

I think this is a good fictional story for kids. I also think that it is a great bedtime story for kids and that the pictures are funny. The narrator reads this story funny. If I had to grade this book I would give it an A+. Truely remarkable.

This book is my daughter's favorite. She loves the, "Read to Me," function of this story. Great story line, funny, with bright pretty graphics. Someone said the words are not spelled right, that is not true. The only words not spelled right are in one short sentence after the alligator grabs the elephants nose. The words are spelled for the effect of the story (how your words would sound if your nose was being pinched).

This is a great book because it was free and you can record then when your child wants to read it he or she has the voice of some one else they know telling the story
