Danny the Dragon Encourages Quality Time with Family

Friend and radio show host of Power Women Magazine Deb Bailey shared an adorable photo of her grandson reading Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy with his father.

A little back story: when the package arrived from his grandma, the boy ran into the room excitedly encouraging his dad to read to him!  How pleased I am to know that Danny is not only a friendly, traveling dragon, but also an inspiration for engaging in quality time with family.

    Sooo sweet! What a wonderful photo!

    Not only does it encourage family time because the nature of children’s books require parents or elders to read to litle ones, but Danny the Dragon’s themes are all about family togetherness. What an outstanding series you have!

    We can’t just leave it up to our kids though to tell us when it’s reading time. Regular reading time=making a real difference in our children’s lives!

    Too cute! Regular reading time is sooo important. I’m a third grade teacher and I’ve noticed one for one that the best students in my class have parents who read to them or encourage them to read on their own!

  13. Sylvia says:

    That’s what’s so wonderful about your book is that it teaches you lessons about how to be a family:)

  14. Bethany Sterling says:

    I like this photo a lot because it reminds you of one of the most rewarding advantages of reading to your child. People talk about how important it is for their reading skills, etc., but I do it because reading is a precious moment we can enjoy together:)

    You should have a little Danny the Dragon reading picture contest! It would be soooo cute!

  22. Mina says:

    Well this is just such as special picture…someone should send in a video of a reading!

  23. Peggy says:

    This is why children’s books are so important because kids of course learn but their parents and family have to read to them, bringing everyone closer together!

  24. Natalie says:

    Can’t wait for your next Danny books so we can have more Danny the Dragon adventures to share with our kids!
