Brain candy in book form

Another gimmicky book for kids that entertains with colorful illustrations but has no substantive message. Dragons, partying, tacos, and fiery destructive tantrums.

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

DRAGONS LOVE TACOS is delightful, silly fun from start to finish. The boy narrator speaks directly to the reader, beginning with, "Hey, kid! Did you know that dragons love tacos?" He goes on to explain how they hate spicy salsa and love parties, especially taco parties. The narrator addresses the dragons directly, too, as in: "Hey, dragon, why do you guys love tacos so much?"

There's lots to look at in the cartoon-like illustrations, with dragons of all shapes, sizes, and colors socializing at costume parties and pool parties, dancing, playing charades, and ultimately donning hardhats to rebuild the house they accidentally destroy during a taco party. The humor is deadpan and nonstop.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
