Dance, Dani, Dance! follows spunky Dani on one of her regular visits to the hospital. The story is simply written and illustrated with captivating colorful drawings to appeal to the read-to-me or beginner reader audiences. Dance, Dani, Dance! helps minimize the mystery and apprehension of visiting the doctor, which all children experience at some point during their life. The light tone and Dani's charisma make the book an upbeat read full of courage and hope.
The book was written to raise funds for the author's two-year-old niece, who was born with a rare and lifelong blood disease. Proceeds of this book will benefit Daniela's Dream for a
Cure nonprofit organization. Dillon has created a reference page for parents at the end of the story that specifically addresses Daniela's disease and nonprofit organization in greater detail so they can choose how much to share with their child based on age and interest.
