Happy birthday to my son Jason and 5 month birthday to the puppies!
My two puppies Bailey and Teddy graduated from their Canine Obedience class with flying colors! This is the first step to getting them to the status of “Canine Citizens,” which means they’re allowed to accompany me to schools, libraries and hospitals for book readings to children. I have an overall purpose with this: it gives me a chance to show kids how reading to their animals is a great way of improving reading abilities. It has been proven that reading aloud improves reading skills and speed.
Since we had such a successful debut at the Toy Fair, now I’m talking with my team about making Danny into a plush toy…the possibilities are seemingly endless! This is another idea that I’m setting aside though for the moment. For now, Rosie and I have other projects to handle.
Wow – the American International Toy Fair is not to be under-estimated, this is a huge one! As much as I want to be there though, just don’t want to do it – NY is way too cold for me.
I have been working on so much lately on developing recipes for the Danny cookbook — just so busy and all kinds of things moving in the right direction , including the upcoming American International Toy Fair in New York – Danny the Dragon will be there!
I’m excited to say that the Tina Turbin website has officially launched! I have now started photography classes and am really learning how to take shots of food for the cookbook so I can at least oversee the shots from some point of knowledge. That’s my style! I always want to learn. We all should.
