What’s It About?
In THE JUNGLE BOOK: THE MOWGLI STORIES, voice actors and narrators retell the classic Jungle Book tales with sound effects and descriptions that push listeners' imaginations to create the scenes in their head. Episodes star Mowgli, the man-cub who was found by wolves living in the jungle, as he learns to survive and navigate the many adventures and chaotic situations he finds himself in.
Is It Any Good?
The storytelling is descriptive and the voice actors, narration, and sound effects make each adventure with Mowgli come to life. The Jungle Book: The Mowgli Stories is an entertaining podcast for kids and adults as they retell the classic stories from Rudyard Kipling. Episodes are quick and could be great to listen to in the car or as you're getting ready for bed.

Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about how in the beginning of The Jungle Book: The Mowgli Stories, many of the animals were unsure about accepting a man-cub into their pack. However, some wolves stood up for Mowgli (the man-cub), believing they should take care of him. What does this teach you about embracing others who are different than us? Do you have a story when you felt different from those around you?
Episodes feature sound effects such as animal noises, raining, and other nature-like sounds from the jungle. How do sound effects help the story that is being told? What images does it create in your head as you listen?
When listening to content that at times turns to violent themes such as hunting or kidnapping, it is important to know what is too much for you. How did these moments make you feel, such as when Mowgli was kidnapped? Were there any moments that were too intense? Why is it important to recognize when these moments frighten us?
