How the elephant got its trunk is adapted from a story by British Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling. Kipling was born in India and spent the first six years of his childhood there.

    Just ok

    My son was somewhat interested in this book but was totally confused by why the elephant was spanked for asking questions. I personally found the woman' s voice annoying and she read way too slowly. At least it was free.
