Dragons Love Tacos is a silly story about a boy trying to befriend dragons. He is told that dragons love all types of tacos, chicken, beef, big and tiny tacos. He is told that dragons HATE spicy salsa and that he should use mild ingredients when making the salsa. He should use tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese as toppings for the dragon's tacos, and NO spicy salsa. He decides to throw a taco party for the dragons, because dragons love parties and tacos. He accidentally puts spicy salsa on the tacos and the dragons burn his house down. This is just a fun story about dragons and their love for tacos. It could be fun for the students to make salsa in the classroom and make sure they don't include anything spicy! ( )

Introduce the book/ Tell about book: Have you ever wondered what Dragons looovee to eat? They LOVE tacos! Tacos are their favorite food! They could eat buckets and buckets of tacos. In fact, if you were to have a party for dragons with tacos, you would need to fill an entire boat up with tacos to make sure they had enough. But do you know what dragons hate? Hot salsa!! They cannot stand it! Bad things happen when they eat hot salsa…
Favorite Part: My favorite part of this book is how the dragons love tacos so much, yet they are very specific, just like you and me! We all have things we don't like to eat, and so do they!
Give recommendation: If you love tacos, love dragons, or love imagining what would happen if dragons ate Hot salsa and all the destruction it could possibly lead to, then this book is definitely for you!!!

This was a fantasy book which explains that dragons love tacos. Dragons also hate spicy salsa! The boy through a taco party for the dragons with a boat full of tacos, but accidentally put jalepenos in the salsa. The dragons ate the tacos and fire came out of their mouths. The fire burnt down the boys house. Since dragons are so nice, they helped the boy rebuild his home..only because there were tacos involved. ( )

This modern fantasy story is about how much dragons enjoy eating tacos. In order to become friends with a dragon, tacos are the way to their hearts. The little boy in the book learns that the toppings of the tacos need to stay mild to prevent tummy troubles. The dragons also enjoy all different kinds of parties, especially taco parties. However, the dragons ate something spicy and catch the entire house on fire and have to rebuild the boy's house. ( )

I did like the book, and I think young ones will, too, BUT (you knew that was coming, didn't you) I felt there was a disconnect between eating the mild salsa with the spicey jalapeños, the destruction of the house, and the rebuilding of it. Is this another case of "lack of editor?" It seems to be a prevalent problem.

Ah well, have a taco! ( )

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.
