Danny the Dragon Encourages Quality Time with Family

Friend and radio show host of Power Women Magazine Deb Bailey shared an adorable photo of her grandson reading Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy with his father.

A little back story: when the package arrived from his grandma, the boy ran into the room excitedly encouraging his dad to read to him!  How pleased I am to know that Danny is not only a friendly, traveling dragon, but also an inspiration for engaging in quality time with family.
