    “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. ”

    “When I started teaching, I found this big box of reading books at school. I dumped them all out to have a look at them. Most were really outdated! Among them, I found a few books all covered up with library stickers. When I looked through them, I thought, ‘What is this?” They were Danny books and they were different. They started me on this journey for new and better reading books.”
    –Rebecca, teacher in Salem III School District, IL

  3. 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!

    Yes, I use MaryRuth Books!! Here are some of my favorites: Super Danny( boys especially love this one), Danny Can Sort(students love the surprise big bone at the end of the story), Danny and Abby are Friends, Danny looks for Abby, Danny at the car Wash, Danny and the Little Worm, Danny and the Bully. I could name several more like the new Norman and Danny books. The stories, the pictures, the use of high frequency words and just the endearing characters of Danny and Bee, Dad, Abby and Grandma Ruth are many of the reasons I use these books. My Reading Recovery students so enjoy them all. I also use the sequencing cards and the conversation cards for oral language development and writing prompts during my lessons.

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
