Sign Interpretation Available
Many of you may have noticed a clip of my Danny the Dragon “Meets Jimmy” app in the newest iPad commercials for the iPad 3. I am extremely honored by Apple’s recognition and support and could not be happier to see my app and book succeeding so well.
Dreamworks Affiliated Company Transforms Award Winning Children’s Tale, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, into an iPhone App
Award winning children’s tale “Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy” transformed into iPhone app.
Los Angeles, CA –
Entering into a collaboration with the Danny the Dragon team, the Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy iPhone app was officially released by iStorytime in late 2010 to fans who were eagerly anticipating the ability to read their favorite children’s book through the latest technology.
Children’s literacy is one of the most important issues facing us today. Fortunately, many groups, organizations, and individuals are dedicated to reversing the staggering statistics. However, as hard as people are working to get kids reading, there are some kids—such as the visually- impaired ones—who get left out. Thanks to Stevie Wonder, though, visually-impaired literacy is getting some of the attention it deserves.
Danny fans can now see a preview of the iPad Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy app, which stands out as a groundbreaking innovation for being the first children’s book app with a sign language interpretation mode. iStoryTime, the app developer for DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon, has posted a sample of the signed reading of the book on You Tube.
I’m happy to report that Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, the first book in my Danny the Dragon children’s book series, has been recognized by the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards. The Annual Purple Dragonfly Awards is a contest that seeks to award authors of books that appeal to children in all age groups. On their website, they say that they search for books that “inspire, inform, teach or entertain.” I’m honored that they have found those qualities in the story of Danny the Dragon and Jimmy.
