Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin

Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin; illustrated by Daniel Salmieri

My favorite book on the 101 Picture Book Challenge list is "Dragons Love Tacos" written by Adam Rubin and illustrated by Daniel Salmieri

Dragons love tacos, and so do I.

"Dragons Love Tacos" is a comical story about how to organize a perfect taco party for dragons. It does not go according to plan, and the disastrous consequences of what spicy salsa can do to all those dragons make this book a fun read. The detailed illustrations of dragons and tacos make me chuckle every time I turn a page. A delightful, delicious, delectable, and satisfying story for all ages.

Available in Print, eBook, DVD, eVideo (hoopla) and eVideo (Overdrive).

Audience: Ages 3-7 | Grades PreK-2
