Chatting with the Hartford Books Examiner

It was a pleasure to be interviewed again by the Hartford Book Examiner. This was the third Q&A I’ve done so far with Mr. John Valeri since the release of Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy and the whirlwind that followed during my East Coast and West Coast book tours.

I can always count on insightful questions from the Hartford Books Examiner. In the latest interview, we talked about the release of my iPad and iPhone app for Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy. The app stands out for being the only children’s book app to have sign language interpretation.

Check out my interview below!

    Awesome! I’m so glad your app has been so successful. We aren’t an iPad family though, but we may come around in the future. I prefer to read hard copy books, you know ones in 3 dimensions where you can feel and smell pages (I’m a book lover!!!), so I can’t really see myself reading books on an iPad, but my husband and kids would probably really like it a lot.

    Hi Tina we got your Danny the Dragon book last Christmas from my sister and we read it a couple times a week at bedtime. My daughter really loves it so much. She often draws lots of picture of Danny. We’re going to send one to Danny this weekend!

    That’s great to see the Hartford Examiner is continuing to cover what you’re doing! I’m not surprised since you have that new app now that there is so much renewed interest in Danny the Dragon. Not only is it a really neat app but it’s got American Sign Language for kids to learn too!

    All of these are great articles and interviews. My favorite style of interview is the Q and A. Love it! And we love you and Danny!

    I apologize if this is a duplicate comment, but my computer seemed to refresh instead of sending my comment before (I have problems like that all the time with this computer). Anyway, just wanted to say that I read through all of these articles and I learned so much about you, Tina, and I liked everything I learned. Thanks for sharing these great pieces with us!

    Hi Tina just checking in with Hayden and Emma to say hello to our favorite dragon. Emma says: “Hi Danny we love you and made you a pretty picture with the Easter Bunny.” (I should send it in!) And Hayden, 2 1/2, says, “Danny has green. Bye-bye Danny!”
