Let’s go to the movies! Animated true story from WWI

The true story of the most decorated dog in American military history — Sgt. Stubby — and the enduring bonds he forged with his brothers-in-arms in the trenches of World War I has just been released.

I can’t think of another animated movie set in WWI so it’s a great history lesson for children who may not be aware of the war that ravaged Europe one hundred years ago. And at it’s heart it’s all about courage and bravery. Commonsense movies rates this as suitable for 8+ years.

The cast is stupendous, including Helena Bonham-Carter whose great-grandfather was prime minister of England during the Great War.
