What's TV reading now?

After the Eric Carles and Dr. Suess, we're moving on. TV's current favorite is The Jungle Book.
We've a beautifully illustrated copy of this Walt Disney presentation, thank you Neena for donating it. And TV cant get enough of it.

I read it to her for the first time a month back. And then on and off. Showed her the memorable hindi jungle book jingle on youtube and couple of other snippets from the TV series. And she loves it.

She has to read it almost every morning. Now my helper reads it to her. And TV prides in spotting the animals in the picture and correcting her reader if she's missed a sequence or if she mispronounces the names.

Her favorite sequences are - of bagheera persuading mowgli to leave the jungle, baloo's training mowgli, the monkeys and the baby elephant in Hathi's dawn patrol.

The reading session is more of TV's storytelling spiced up with the 'jungle jungle baat chali hai' recitation.
