  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I had a boy who was very reluctant to read. After finding the Danny books, he began recommending them to other students in his class. These books are great because the dogs are relatable. The kids love them.

    We just started using MaryRuth books at our school. We purchased the Danny Collection and we LOVE it! The kids love the silly antics of Danny and Bee. I personally love the books with Danny and Grandma Ruth. All of the Danny stories are so fun and I know the kids will enjoy learning with them next year. Thanks! We LOVE the books!

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    The “Danny” series are a favorite among my Reading Recovery students. I think it’s the real-life character of Danny and reading about the silly things Danny can do that is so motivating to them. Many of my students have a pet, so they can make connections to this character.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    I use books from the Danny series. They are the only Mary Ruth books I have, but students love them. I enjoy using them because it helps to have familiar characters, none of them are too lengthy, and I feel like they are leveled appropriately and challenge students just enough. The pictures are supportive but don’t give away too much and still allow for problem solving. Kids also like writing about Danny, and I’ve had some make their own Danny stories in roaming.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    My students love animal characters. They especially love Danny because he reminds them of their dog, their friends dog, a dog that they might have in their lives. The size of the books is great, very user friendly. The font is good too. The pictures and art work are engaging and realistic which I think the kids appreciate.
