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.

A lovely response to a donation of my Danny the Dragon materials to a cause that I support dearly.

I came across a review for Tina Turbin‘s book Danny The Dragon “Meets Jimmy” on my friend’s blog.  Because I have a child her son’s age and a child a bit younger, and because I trust her opinion on books that we will enjoy, I did not hesitate to order a copy of the book and audio CD for my own children.  I have two kids, ages 4 and 2, who are bookophiles and I know they will love their book!
