About the Book

This favorite book by author Adam Rubin and illustrator by Daniel Salmieri is for children ages 3-5 years. Older children will love it too! Did you know Dragons love beef tacos? And chicken tacos? Would you believe tacos are dragons’ favorite food? As much as dragons like tacos, they hate spicy salsa and spicy toppings. So make lots of tacos but keep ingredients mild with tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese. These are all good toppings for a bunch of dragons, you don’t want any red-hot trouble! Children will be craving buckets of tacos after reading this fun story! Children will love to have this picture book read over and over again and want to make their own teeny tiny tacos or great big tacos. If you enjoy reading silly books, add it to your collection!
