This is a story about a boy who wants to throw a party serving tacos to dragons. The boy makes wonderful tacos and is very careful not to put anything spicy on the tacos or else the dragons will breathe fire. This is a cute book that children under third grade would enjoy. ( )

'Dragons Love Tacos' by Adam Rubin is a story about a boy who wants to throw a party serving tacos to dragons. The boy makes wonderful tacos and is very careful not to put anything spicy on the tacos or else the dragons will breathe fire. As careful as he may be, a dragon gets a hold of spicy salsa and passes it out to numerous dragons at the party. Soon the dragons breathe fire, burning down the house they are in. In the end the dragons agree to rebuild the house, eating tacos while building it. This is a funny story that will have kids rolling in laughter and anticipation, wondering when the dragons will get ahold of something spicy to breathe fire. ( )

Summary: The book is about a boy who decides he wants to have a taco party with dragons. Dragons love tacos but they can't eat anything that is spicy or else they will breathe fire. Each page of the book reminds the boy to not make spicy tacos. But, at the end, the salsa is spicy and the dragons burn the house down because dragons can't have anything spicy or they will breathe fire!

Critique of Genre: Fantasy because dragons are not real.

This funny book shares the love dragon's have for tacos, but how careful you have to be when putting toppings on the tacos. This story shares imagination, creativity, and adventure through the voice of dragons. This book would be great for young elementary students to produce a fun and relaxed learning environment. ( )

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.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:07:14 -0400)

Explores the love dragons have for tacos, and the dangers of feeding them them anything with spicy salsa.
