What Did Walt Disney Mean By Plussing?

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I absolutely love Walter Elias Disney.

Wednesday with Walt: Sharing the World Through Reading

Walt Disney once said, “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” I, personally, could not agree more. I love this photo of Walt sitting in his chair reading aloud to Diane and Sharon. That must have been some of the best moments of their childhood as far as they were concerned; and…
