Saluting Our Heroes! Planes: Fire & Rescue

July 18, 2014

  Saluting Our Heroes! Planes: Fire & Rescue presented us with a teachable moment as we asked our children to appreciate those who overcome great odds to keep us safe from fires and other weather disasters. Yet again Disney provides excellent family entertainment while emphasizing some important life lessons. Our children cheered with delight when they heard that Planes: Fire & Rescue, the new 3D computer-animated sequel to Planes, was dedicated to our brave American firefighters.  Dusty Crop Hopper, the voice of Dane Cook from the original Planes movie, decides he needs to help his hometown by becoming a firefighter to secure the certificate […]
