    My son loves this one!

    This book was a little advanced for beginner readers, but once the words are learned and read about twice, then its a nice beginner book. My son loves this one too!

    Could not read on the Nook App

    Very disappointed that I puchased this and could not read it on my Nook App. Why offer it as a Nook Book then and not include this important piece of information?

    Danny is 55 years old and doesn't look a day over eight. Ah, the immortality of a good book.
    This book is rather long to read to toddlers, as in it has a lot of pages. But my toddler stayed still for the whole book. Probably because there are only a couple of lines on each page and wonderful, colorful, large illustrations above the words. There is a courtesy in older books that is missing from most newer books. At least, I miss it.
    I imagine in another 55 years, young children will still read about Danny and the dinosaur. And they will still find them charming.

    A classic.

    Almost all little boys love dinosaurs. I gave this to my nephew who is 3 for Christmas. He loved the illustrations so did his mom because she read it when she was little.

    Loved Danny and the Dinosaur

    A very good book for 3 years old or older, especially boys. I am a daycare provider and read it to my children and they love the antics of Danny and the Dinosaur. Dinosaur's are so enticing on their own but pair it with a boy out on the town and you have a big hit in my daycare. We will be reading it for years to come.

    Great book for first time readers!

    My son and I will read this one together. I would read one page and he would read the next. This has to be one of his favorites. Just read it again last night.

    Great for car rides

    Both of my sons like listening to this CD and reading the book in the car. We have a 20 minute commute to school/daycare every day and this is part of our collection.
    The boys enjoy the narrator and the way he changes his voice for each character.

    I love this series

    The "I Can Read" series which includes this level one book is great. My 4 year old loves reading them over and over. This one is really cute. Who doesn't wish they had a pet Dinosaur!

    Hoff Creates Excellent Stories and Encourages Reading

    I read Danny and the Dinosaur to my sister when I was 14 and she was 2. Now I am reading it to my 2 year old. She loves the pictures and the story. Even though she can not speak clearly yet, she can "read" this story to us and tell us what happened. I would recommend to all children as a first book.
