The Elephant’s Child – Story Reading

Here is another Just So Story by Rudyard Kipling, that I rewrote a little bit, to freshen it up and bring the language up to date. It’s a classic story and so fun to read and listen to. I can still hear Miss Sherbourne reading it to me in Class 2 when I was seven!

My channel LearnEnglishThroughStory is (very) slowly adding subscribers. If you are not subscribed on YouTube, it would be wonderful if you could click the link and do so!

Help me get my story channel off the ground!

I’ve started a new story channel on youtube, called Learn English Through Story.

I noticed that many videos that are of a similar length and age bracket to mine are aimed at english language learning interest groups – doing the same as me, sharing the text on screen to follow along with the reading.

So I thought it would be an interesting experiment to do the same – especially as some of the offerings are quite dire – and some in terrible english!

It would help me so much if everyone that reads this follows this link and subscribes to the channel and watches one of my videos. It would help to get the channel noticed by YouTube’s algorithm and start attracting some views. It’s so hard getting a new channel off the ground – I need all the support I can get!

As well as my stories, I’m planning to post some British classics. Today I posted Beatrix Potter’s – The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher. I’m planning to work my way through all her books.

This is going to be a fun project so do please help by subscribing now!
