Pixar Collection: The Wisdom of Pixar Book

As I looked around Amazon to see what cool Pixar books are out there that I don't have, I came across this one- "The Wisdom of Pixar" by Robert Velarde. The description reads: 

"Kids and adults alike love Pixar's movies. We come out of the theater not just entertained or amused, but inspired. Everybody agrees: Pixar makes fun, clean, terrific movies. But what makes these movies so appealing is not merely amazing CGI animation, clever humor or fantastic imagination. These movies are not just great. Pixar's movies are .Robert Velarde unpacks the movies of Pixar and shows how they display the best of classic Christian virtues. Pixar's films resonate with us because of their moral character. Their virtuous themes of hope and courage, friendship and love connect with our deepest human longings. Whether we identify with the plight of a lost fish or the adventures of toys, bugs or cars, Pixar's characters help us build our own character, with the kind of virtue that we want for ourselves and those around us." 

This stood out to me as I enjoy looking deeper into the lessons and values of some of my favorite films. I love the messages in each Pixar movie and I look forward to getting a new perspective on the virtues found in each one (from Toy Story through Up with references to Toy Story 3). Thanks to my mom who sent this as a surprise!
