Book of Life and Shakespeare

book of lifeSo I just went to the movie theater with my kid to see the movie, The Book of Life. I really enjoyed the movie, and the music that goes along with it. But, what caught my surprise was the Shakespeare reference that was in it. This is a nice subtle way to get kids to reference Shakespeare. There is a little bit of Romeo and Juliet in the storyline especially when the hero dies. I’m not going to spoil the story for you, but I can tell you this, it ends better than Romeo and Juliet!

Just thought I would share a little bit of Shakespeare for your kids out in the world.

Enjoy!
