Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy Book Review

Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy Book Review

Reading is a big thing at our house.

My husband and I enjoy reading, my children love to read.

Every night we read a minimum of 25 minutes before bedtime.

It’s created some magical and wonderful memories.

I was recently asked by Imagination Publishing to review a children’s book called Danny the Dragon “Meets Jimmy” by Tina Turbin.

This is the first book to be released in the Danny the Dragon series.

Danny the Dragon “Meets Jimmy” is a delightful book about a boy named “Jimmy” who meets a friendly dragon named “Danny” while at the beach with his family.

It’s about the discovery of friendship.

My three youngest children read it as soon as it was out of the wrapper.

Abi then came to visit me while I cooked dinner and shared with me the adventure of Jimmy and his friend “Danny the Dragon”.

Her revision made me curious, so we read it together.

As a parent, I find this book to be a wonderful resource for my children to use their imagination and curiosity.

I also appreciate the use of “kindness” throughout the book with the characters remembering to use their “please” and “thank you”.

It’s a great example of manners, imagination, kindness and how reading can take us on amazing journeys.

Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy takes finding a simple, ordinary item–like a seashell at the beach–and transforming it into a world of magical things with imagination.

The book is illustrated by Aija Jasuna.

The characters were fun and the use of colors is impressive.

I found my own imagination come to life as I looked at the beautifully illustrated pages.

We have read this book multiple times per day over the course of a week.

My Li’l Man loves the story and has even shared with me a few “Danny the Dragon” adventures of his own.

I love it when a book comes to life in a child’s mind.

The book is available at Amazon, or you may order it directly at the official Danny the Dragon website.
