Another Wonderful Book Review of Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy!

Jewelry designer Victoria Cunningham, wrote the following book review of Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy:

“Your book is wonderful. Congratulations! It’s a great story about
listening and trust and family. I like how you incorporate “helping”
with the dishes etc… Only a mom could understand how important that is. I love the colorful illustrations, my daughters would love it.
thanks for the read!”
