Dani’s father is away and Dani is staying with her grandparents. When she is invited to Ella’s party, she thinks of the world’s best gift for the world’s best friend: she, Dani, will be the present! Her grandmother agrees— if she’s brave enough to take the train alone.So Dani sets out on a journey all by herself.

The Dani books are fantastic for young readers who are independent but are just as fantastic as read aloud stories for the classroom. These books would be fantastic to generate conversations about safety, feelings, friendship and family dynamics…Extremely highly recommended
I love this series.
