The Jungle Book is a heartwarming story about a “man-cub” called Mowgli who gets lost in the jungle and ends up adopted by “wild” animals. He learns how to survive by “the Law of the Jungle” – the lessons taught to him by Baloo, the bear, and Bageera, the black panther. He even wins the heart of the most menacing of all the jungle creatures, Kaa, the rock python. The jungle animals strive to teach Mowgli that every living creature is a “brother of one blood,” never knowing that Mowgli will soon teach them a valuable lesson, too. For when the “Little Mowglette” is captured by the monkeys, Mowgli comes to realize that even though they smell and throw trash, they are still “brothers” just like every other living creature. The little man cub knows that seeing doesn’t just involve looking with the eyes, but noticing with the heart.
