How the Camel Got His Hump…How the Leopard Got His Spots


Why? How? When? Kids begin asking questions almost immediately after they learn to speak. Kids of all ages will enjoy “The Just So Stories” on May 4, at the Grand Prairie Center on the campus of Phillips Community College/University of Arkansas in Stuttgart. The fun and entertaining play is based on the collection of stories written by Rudyard Kipling. First published in 1902, “The Just So Stories” gives fantastic answers to some of the most often-asked questions, ranging from camels and their humps to leopards and their spots.
