What would happen if a dinosaur came to a birthday party? Come to Danny's house and find out. His friend the dinosaur helps make this one party you'll never forget!
Happy Birthday, Danny and the Dinosaur! is a Level One I Can Read book that is perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
PreS-Gr 2--Hoff continues the story from where he left it 37 years ago. Danny returns to the museum to invite his dinosaur friend to his sixth birthday party. As in the original book, the dinosaur does things with his own unique twist, providing the humor beginning readers will enjoy.
