Danny the Dragon DREAMS CD to be released at "Sesame Street Halloween" concert.

In an outstanding show of compassion Tina has produced her entire book on DVD along with the addition of a sign language interpreter for deaf children.

Tina Turbin, humanitarian, researcher and author of the celebrated children’s book Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy will release the Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy DVD (vivid audio-visual presentation of the book) with sign-language interpretation for the deaf on April 15th 2010.

During the author’s National Book Tour of ‘09, while visiting a school for the deaf, she was alarmed to learn that a high percentage of deaf high school students graduate at the 4th grade reading level. This opened her eyes to the need for materials to assist their education and raise awareness to these facts. Tina personally produced the DVD as a result. Official release of the DVD is scheduled for April 15th 2010, and will be available through Imagination Publishing Group, Victory Multimedia other major distributors.

Profits are generously donated by Tina to the Blossom Montessori School for the Deaf, as well as causes which support the improvement of literacy and education.
