Dragons Love Tacos – A Children’s Book

In literature, dragons are fierce beasts that don’t seem to be very picky about what or who they eat. But in the children's book, Dragons Love Tacos, written by Adam Rubin, we find that dragons actually have some specific tastes when it comes to food.
Dragons Love Tacos is an adorable book that tells how dragons love tacos and parties, but how they hate spicy salsa. This book is one of Emily's favorites. We've read it so much that she can 'read' it on her own now. The story is perfect for younger kids and matches well with the great illustrations by Daniel Salmieri.
I would recommend Dragons Love Tacos highly for any child because of the cute story about kind dragons who just want to eat tacos. Dragons Love Tacos is available in hardcover.
Note: I received a copy of this book for review purposes.


  1. Haha, this reminds me of a game I played with my 2-year-old cousin once...I offered to get up early with him so my cousins, exhausted new parents, could sleep in.

    I'm sitting on the couch and he's wide awake. It's like 6 a.m., and I can barely keep my eyes open. He gathers up these small wooden tiles that have pictures of animals on one side. He hands me a stuffed dragon. Then he proceeds to turn over each tile, say the name of the animal and offer it to my dragon to see if my dragon will eat it.

    I swear to God he came up with this game entirely on his own. I was not awake enough to do more than shake the dragon's head as he was offered unappetizing things like fish and lizards.

    Then, finally, he turned over a sheep. Immediately I swooped in with my dragon to gobble it up, because everyone knows sheep are one of a dragon's favorite foods. Then I realized I'd skipped the part of the game where he said the name of the animal. I asked him to name it.

    Looking up at me with his sweet, innocent face, he said: "A baby lamb."

    Yes, I had just eaten a baby.

    He was fascinated and not at all upset, and kept asking me, all day long, in front of his parents of all things, why the dragon preferred baby lambs.
