Today I am excited to share with you about The Book of Life Collection shop at World Market along with The Book of Life Movie and The Book of Life Sweepstakes! I have two words for you – Channing Tatum – yup! Hearing his voice as one of the main characters in this movie has me excited to see it. He is so YUM! Also halloween is one of my favorite times of year and this movie comes out On October 17th – perfect timing! Let me tell you more about this fun looking movie…
The Book of Life from Fox Studios is a movie based on the cultural celeration of “Dia de los Muertos” (a day of remembering the memories of lost loved ones)
The movie is starring the voices of Channing Tatum (YES!!!!!) , Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Directed by Jorge Gutierrez (El Tigre, Mad TV) and produced by Guillermo Del Toro (Puss in Boots, Kung Fu Panda, Pan’s Labyrith)
It is an animated movie of a Romeo and Juliet-inspired love story set during a Day of the Dead celebration: Manolo (Diego) is a young matador who wants to shed the expectations of his family to follow his dreams of being a musician and his best friend, Joaquin (Channing), is the successful pride of the town. They compete for the heart of Maria (Zoe). In order to win Maria’s heart and save her life, Manolo must face his greatest fears and follow his heart to rewrite his destiny.
I can’t wait to see this movie!!

When I first heard of this movie coming out I showed it to my kids and we talked about “Dia de los Muertos”. Honestly, they didn’t know what that was and they asked if it was like Halloween. I explained that it is a day that people can remember the memories of their lost loved ones. I think it will be good for us to go to the movie so they can get a better understanding of the holiday.
I grabbed a few toys from World Market that I thought the kids would enjoy.
Since Kayden plays the Violin I thought he might enjoy trying out the guitar. I didn’t want Adison to be left out of the music so I got her some Maracas.
World Market also had a Dia de los Muertos skull so I grabbed that to show them the designs and ideas around the holiday. I also grabbed some Mexican Wedding Cookies because these are a cookie that I think is so yummy. I alos grabbed a Book of Life Tin Keepsake box because Adison loves little Keepsake boxes. I think once they see the movie they will even have more fun with these items.
While checking out The Book of Life items at World Market be sure to check out their Halloween Decorations – they are awesome!
