Overview

One of the most popular titles of the I Can Read series, featuring that lovable dinosaur and his friend Danny! In Danny and the Dinosaur, Danny spends an entire day with his newly-found friend — a dinosaur. Silly antics ensue in Happy Birthday, Danny and the Dinosaur!, when Danny turns six and invites the dinosaur to his birthday party. In Danny and the Dinosaur Go to Camp the duo enjoy boating, hiking and roasting marshmallows.

In the bonus book, Sammy the Seal spends a day on the town and finds out what really goes on outside the zoo on an average day. When Sammy makes his way down the street, an ordinary day becomes an extraordinary adventure as he searches for a place to swim and learns how to read and write in school.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Four complete books by Syd Hoff from HarperCollins' I Can Read series are included here. One of the dinosaurs in the museum comes to life and spends the day with a young boy and his friends in Danny and the Dinosaur (HarperCollins, 1986). In Happy Birthday, Danny and the Dinosaur! (HarperCollins, 1995), the dinosaur is back to celebrate Danny's sixth birthday. The dinosaur welcomes a vacation when Danny and the Dinosaur Go to Camp (HarperCollins, 1996), and he doesn't seem to mind when all the kids and the camp counselor ride on his back after a tiring hike. Sammy and the Seal (HarperCollins, 2000) tells the story of a seal on an adventure out of the zoo and into the town, including learning to read and write at school. Peter Lorangis and Charles Mintz alternate telling the stories using delightful voices and clear narration, perfect for young listeners. There are no page turn signals or sound effects, but whimsical musical accompaniment adds to the playfulness of the stories. The only thing missing is the charming and comical illustrations that make the stories so much fun to read. The wonderful narration and music make the audiocassette a joy to listen to, but if you don't want to miss out on the visual humor have the books handy for read-alongs.-April R.
