UPDATE: This giveaway ended, entry #37 won.

I reviewed a copy of Danny the Dragon, written by Tina Turbin and Illustrated by Aija Jasuna, and an accompanying CD which reads the book out loud then plays 10 original composition classical songs.

Me and my daughter follow the cd along with the book before bedtime. My daughter likes to listen to the CD and turn the pages at the chime. Then when its over I tuck her in and turn the volume on low and she goes to sleep with the music going.  She thinks its really special.

The book is about a regular family who comes across Danny the Dragon and his sidekick Skipper.  I won’t spoil the surprise on how Danny meets Jimmy and his family,  but your children will love “where he sleeps” and learn from Danny as Danny is an easy-going, gracious dragon with great manners.  The illustrations are very colorful and my daughter loved them.

About the author: Tina Turbin is donating all proceeds from the Danny the Dragon CD to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University. She is a strong supporter of families, kids and education and runs the website Gluten Free Help which lists recipes that are gluten-free for people with celiac disease.
