The Jungle Book holds a special place in our family’s heart. For me, it is memories of watching it with my Dad not long after my parents divorced. One one of my first weekends with my Dad we watched The Jungle Book. For weeks I called my Dad Baloo and danced around to the “Bear Necessities.” You can imagine my excitement when I received this copy of The Jungle Book Diamond Edition – my favourite story remastered. However, I couldn’t prepare myself for my husband’s reaction when the package came. I showed him the movie and said I was excited to watch it. He got all teary and couldn’t really speak. Seeing the movie brought back his memories of going to see The Jungle Book with his beloved Uncle that he hasn’t seen for years. The voice of Baloo in Spanish is the voice of a famous Comedian that he loved. With all those memories flooding back we decided to watch the movie with our boys right away.
