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!”
