Book of the Week: Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin



“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.”

Dragons Love Tacos is such a great book. The writing style is very unique, the pictures are engaging and the story is just plain fun! Plus, it gets your tummy thinking about yummy tacos…perfect for this week’s project!

Easier than crumbly taco shells for kiddos’ little hands–and more fun to fill! See instructions below.

  • Ground beef
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Sour cream
  • Mild salsa  (in the interest of sticking with the book’s instructions)
  • Shredded cheese
  • Olives (optional)
