I am so happy my friends have kids.
Despite my and my husband’s difficulties in this area (see: my really long sad story from last autumn), it’s really nice to be able to see an awesome looking children’s book and be able to gift it to these kids. Because, obviously, I can’t just walk into my local indie bookstore and buy a copy of Dragons Love Tacos, right?
Not for myself anyway.
I think this book is the funniest thing. I love the artwork in it. I love that it will foster a love of both dragons and tacos, which are two of my favorite things as an adult. So I get that I can’t go out and splurge on children’s books for me, but I’ll be darned if I can’t appreciate them.
There’s this whole thing in the book about how dragons are always hungry and have big bellies, so OBVIOUSLY they must eat tacos, because tacos are the best. Of course! I am in 100% agreement.
But here’s the thing – there can be spicy things in tacos! And, err, dragons breathe fire… so… potential house-burning-down problems.
This book cracks me up. And there’s a sequel. I bought the first one for my best friends’ toddler last summer, and she loved it so much that they got the sequel for Christmas. As a bonus, she has additional enthusiasm for taco night, which should be #parentinggoals for everyone.
Because tacos are the best.
This week’s Book Blogger Hop asked:
Who is your favorite children’s books author and why?
Short answer: I don’t read many children’s books, as I am a childless adult, but I’ve stumbled across a few that are great. I’m always a fan of Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle, and I have favorite from my own childhood (Little Bunny Foo Foo!) but in modernity, the greatest one I’ve come across is Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin. It just amuses me. I’m easily amused.
What is your favorite children’s book?
Did you read a lot by a certain author when you were really little?
What book from your own childhood have you (or do your someday plan to) pass on to your younglings?
