When I first saw this Subaru commercial, I thought “How great! A commercial with a great message about getting outside and away from our devices! Plus singing dogs!” Sonja and I are always on the lookout for digital texts that teach. We love collecting digital texts that have positive themes about disconnecting from devices in order to reconnect with our families and friends. Enjoy!
