This book is about dragons loving all different kinds of tacos. They have spicy tacos and everyone is in trouble. I would read this to K-3rd. Illustrations: water color ( )

Today's audience was a group of second graders. This book combines two things kids love, dragons and tacos. Although you will want to throw a dragon taco party just make sure you don't accidentally give them spicy salsa or the results will be disastrous!

I found this book to be mildly amusing while the kids loved it. They enjoyed the story and took a lot of interest in the illustrations, especially the ones of the dragon party. I don't know if this is a book that I would want to read over and over but the kids liked it a lot and they hadn't heard the story before. It nicely filled a hole in the sub plans and I would consider adding it to my sub bag of tricks for the early elementary school set. ( )

This story is literally about dragons who love tacos. It also talks about how they may love tacos, but they hate spicy salsa. "Dragons Love Tacos" is how to get onto a dragons good side and you have to make them an abundance of tacos. In this story the author uses cause and effect to get their point across and also uses repetition. This story also utilizes different descriptive words that would be good to introduce young children to. The more exposure to new words, the smarter the children will become and the more likely that they will use these words in their own personal writing. I would recommend this book to introduce a writing unit and to show the students how to use descriptive words to make their stories more interesting. ( )

Dragons Love Tacos, is a fun story that is built on fantasy and creativity. This story is about a young boy that throws a party with his dragon friends. He knows how much they love tacos with salsa, but he misreads the label and accidentally serves the spicy salsa. This causes the dragons to start breathing fire and destroy the house. They then help him rebuild his house for the small exchange of more tacos. This entertaining story is a great way of introducing cause and effect because it is demonstrated throughout the story. ( )

Dragons Love Tacos is a fun book about nothing else but dragons that love tacos! Although it has no real moral or a great plot, the story is fun and entertaining for children. The illustrations are also well done and fun in a cartoon style. There is also a sequel to the book called Dragons Love Tacos 2: The sequel. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803736800, Hardcover)

This scrumptious read-aloud has a whole lot of kick!

Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You're in red-hot trouble.

The award-winning team behind Those Darn Squirrels! has created an unforgettable, laugh-until-salsa-comes-out-of-your-nose tale of new friends and the perfect snack.
