A 4-year Old Boy Comments on Danny the Dragon!

Here’s a fun message from a mom that had attended a book reading of Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy with her 2 young boys:

“Morning Tina,
I was driving the boys to school this morning and Bodhi (my 4 yr-old) said, “mommy, did you know that dinosaurs don’t have boots?” Then about a minute later he said, “not like Danny the Dragon; he does have boots. Dragons does have boots”. Love it!”

I’d like to share a lovely note of congratulations (for my award nomination in the AZ Authors Association Literary Contest and as an award-winning finalist of the National Best Books Awards of 2009) from my dear friend Carol Downing, a teacher at Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf, who also provided the sign language interpretation on the Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy DVD (based off of my children’s book of the same name).

Danny the Dragon to bring joy to kids in Victoria, Australia

Much devastation was caused by the Victoria, Australia wildfires of February 2009, including the loss of the children’s book collections at the local libraries and schools.

Through the hard work of authors, writers, concerned citizens and the coordinated efforts of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI), the book collections have been re-built as a result of generous book donations from around the world.

Author Tina Turbin – interviewed on the “Garden of the Soul” radio show

Yesterday it was a pleasure to be interviewed on Lynn Serafinn’s “Garden of the Soul” radio show.

We talked about the “Danny the Dragon” book series and my overall
intentions to inspire kindness and friendliness as well as healthy eating and dietary awareness in children; and we also delved into such important topics as the ways in which authors, parents and teachers can use literature to spark positive change in our children, and much, much more.
