More on the Bee

Besides the fun movie Akeelah and the Bee, another interesting resource about the Scripps National Spelling Bee is Spellbound.

Spellbound is a documentary tracing eight kids bound for the national Bee.

And, it is not dry and boring as you might imagine but provides an interesting look inside the lives of Bee kids.

By the way, Netflix has Spellbound.

I saw Spellbound in the theaters. It was quite good.

I was a spelling bee child, myself, and loved this movie. In seventh and eighth grades, I flew through the school and district competitions, but missed passing regionals by 3 and 2 places, respectively. After watching the movie, I am glad I did not go I fear that I would have been humiliated!
