Today, most people are more familiar with Mowgli from the Disney movie than from the original book, but "The Jungle Book" is worth giving to any child. The book is a collection of stories, the best known of which feature Mowgli, the Man-Cub rescued from a tiger as an infant, and raised by wolves in the jungles of India. The book also contains "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi," the story of a heroic mongoose, and "Toomai of the Elephants," the story of a young elephant handler. The stories are fables that give moral lessons with a spoonful of sugar, and teach valuable lessons to children.
