I note some reviewers complain that this is a politically correct edition. They may have updated the kindle file, because the version I got included Bumpo's insistence on receiving a white face. The n-word was not used, but I don't know if that was in the original, anyway. However, I find as an adult that the unedited edition is a valid and necessary shocking reminder of racial attitudes in the 1920s, and can be used to acquaint children with the history of discrimination that lingers (less overtly) today.
In addition, since it had been several years, I decided to read through the book before handing it over to her. It was such a pleasure to remember how much FUN this story is to read! You follow the adventures of a young boy who sees the doctor's adventures through his own eyes, so it's perfect for a child to read. I know my daughter will love it!
Hugh Lofting's imagination allows us to talk with and learn from animals. Though a children's book and easy reading (maybe even aloud to your family?) the conversations and animal perspectives are intriguing and insightful. I've been reading the series with my teenage son and we have very much enjoyed the adventures and the many ways which the animals are extremely helpful to Doctor Doolittle and vice versa.
There are lessons for children to learn even while their imaginations are in high-gear. Lessons of kindness, patience, humility, patience, and caring, just to name a few. However, please realize that this story was published in a MUCH different time, and there is an entire chapter about a black prince that wants to "turn white." The chapter is, in my opinion, a lesson in vanity and conceit (the prince begs for a mirror so he can look at himself all day long), but most likely, that lesson would be lost in modern times. Take it with a grain of salt.
If I ever have kids, this is definitely a book I'd want to read to them. Timeless classic.
