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. ( )

I absolutely adore this book. I was lucky enough to substitute recently as a librarian and read this book to a group of kindergarteners. This book was full of colorful and eye popping illustrations that really cater to a young audience. The text was written so that it was easy to inflect my voice for dramatic effect, and it was simple enough for young readers to follow. I could tell by the classes reaction that they loved the book as much as I did. I commend this book for being such a fun silly read and i believe the authors sole purpose was to entertain. ( )

The book, “Dragons Love Tacos,” by Adam Rubin is a book that tells a story of how dragons are fond of tacos, the only thing is that they cannot eat anything spicy. Through the book there is a boy that is trying to give instructions on how to be friends with dragons and the key is tacos! He also tries to ask why would dragons love tacos so much so he ends up throwing a party for his dragon friends with many tacos. He describes each ingredient for the right taco and tells the audience that the only thing dragons do not like is spicy salsa. The boy makes as many tacos as he can and he gives them out at his taco party, but midway through something wild happens. One of the dragons ends up finding a jar of salsa and starts handing it out to everyone, except the jar of salsa turned out to be spicy salsa instead of regular salsa! All the dragons begin to shoot fire from their mouths and end up destroying the house. In the end, all the dragons collaborate to build a new house, but only do it for the taco breaks.

The book is about how dragons love all different kinds of tacos. The story shows what happens when a Dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa. It is a fun story that will keep children engaged. ( )

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)
