Anyway, it's Thursday and that means . . . a new book.
This week we'd like to introduce you to "Dragons Love Tacos" written by Adam Rubin and illustrated by Daniel Salmieri.
I can't say I can quite pinpoint the appeal of this particular book but I think it has something to do with the dragons eating tacos. That's hilarious you see because one wouldn't think of dragons loving to eat tacos.
And then throw in the twist that dragons are particular about what toppings can go on the tacos and that in no way, what-so-ever, can their be any spiciness to them. Which is funny, you see, because dragons breathe fire. Which is hot.
My boys are not big fans of tacos, they being anti-spice. But they do appreciate the colorful dragon illustrations and the piles of tacos on each page.
What seals the deal for my guys is the chaos that ensues when the dragons are inadvertently fed spicy salsa. This is when they break into all out guffawing which in turn leaves me laughing because really, maybe it's a guy thing, I'm just not getting why that's so funny. I'll read it over and over again though, just to hear them giggle.
