Dove Review

In the “How Itand#700;s Made” manner, this DVD brings kids, and whole families, into the world of the Seagrave Fire Truck plant in the state of Wisconsin. We take a step by step look into the creation of these magnificent machines. From the drawing board, as it were, to seeing the fire trucks roll out of the factory, this is a great learning experience. Some afternoon, join the kids in while they discover how a fire truck is made. We happily award our Dove Seal to this DVD and we award it five Doves!
