Michael Jung, writer and Children’s Literature Specialist, published a terrific review of Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy. His 3-paragraph review truly captures some of the best details of the book.
In his own words, the book contains: “pleasing dragon pictures,” and is “a gentle story that should please fans.”
In the previous blog entry, I shared a wonderful book review published at www.VirtualBookcase.com.
Along with the review, you will find that Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy is also available on one of the children’s “bookshelves” of the Virtual Bookcase website.

I will be interviewed in a casual setting on Lynn Serafinn’s Garden of the Soul radio show about what it is to be a children’s author and the influence that children’s literature has on our children for their current life as well as their future. We will also discuss the importance of a parent’s time with a child in reading, spending quality time with our children and more. Lynn and I had a lovely conversation this past week to prepare for her show and I know you will all be very pleased with what is ahead. Please tune in on August 5th 1PM eastern time at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/Lynn-Serafinn. You can listen to the show at any time on “demand” (after the broadcast).
