Fall has arrived and once again I am reminded that the Christmas season is not too far away. I enjoy Christmas classics which is why I was excited about the opportunity to review 52 Little Lessons from It’s a Wonderful Life. Bob Welch has penned a delightful book which contains 52 life lessons from this classic movie. Each chapter has a title (which is the life lesson), a line (or lines) from the movie and then a few pages expanding upon the life lesson.
I really enjoyed this book as it gave an in depth view of the movie. I look forward to watching the movie this year as I am sure I will notice things that I have not noticed before reading this book. One part of the book that I really enjoyed was the Author’s Note in the beginning. Bob talks about how a bank in the city that he lives in requires all new employees to watch a series of scenes from this movie. He quotes the bank president who said, “The message in that film, is the message we want our employees to come to work with every day: the idea that our actions make a difference in the community around us.” What a powerful statement! If you like this movie I believe you will enjoy this book.
