Danny's Song is the story of Danny -- a boy who uses crutches and braces to help him walk. When it snows outside, his brother and sister do not wait for him and rush outside.

Feeling left out, Danny hides in a closet. When his siblings return, they notice he is missing and begin talking about the many things that he does well. Still in the closet, Danny makes up a song about his many talents.

When he finally emerges, Danny goes to the piano to work on his song before enjoying some hot cocoa with his siblings.
