Watch The Jungle Book preview where Richard Sherman writes a new verse. I LOVE this feature because it is the “original” but yet newer and it brings back fond childhood memories and comes into play. Which is probably one of my favorite scenes in the new movie and now I understand why.
Kipling is still much quoted, via and his famous poem “IF,” but is also important. They are important because they address the prime relationships in one’s life – family, coworkers, bosses – and everyone’s relationship with Nature. For instance, if a boy is raised by wolves, then wolves are his family until the last one dies. The themes of The Jungle Book revolve around noble qualities such as loyalty, honor, courage, tradition, integrity, and persistence. These are good to discuss and ponder in any century, making the stories timeless.
