I was honored and touched by the review of the first book in my children’s book series, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, by book critic Gerardine Baugh of the Chicago Examiner. She had nothing but praise for my story, its themes, and the award-winning illustrations by Aija Jasuna.
Among her many kind words, Ms. Baugh wrote, “Each time a child opens this book they will see something to count, or laugh over…I recommend this book as a birthday or holiday gift, or just a special bedtime gift. What a sweet way to lull your child to sleep.”
Regarding its themes, she wrote, that she “was equally impressed by how the writer, Tina Turbin, who in her story telling, showed me this sweet family working together and helping each other with manners and love…” I’m so glad that Ms. Baugh has appreciated the theme of family togetherness in my book. As the mother of three (now grown) children, it’s important for me to pass on to my readers the importance of mutual kindness and helping as ingredients in a strong, happy family.
