Dragons Love Tacos
Dragons Love Tacos | Adam Rubin
66 posts | 66 read | 27 to read
This scrumptious New York Times bestseller has a whole lot of kick! Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You're in red-hot trouble. The award-winning team behind Those Darn Squirrels! has created an unforgettable, laugh-until-salsa-comes-out-of-your-nose tale of new friends and the perfect snack.

1. I mean, who doesn‘t love tacos?
2. Both! (No joke, I have a student who can‘t wait to turn 18 so he can get a Cheeto tattoo 🤣)
3. Sunrise
4. Pay bills ☹️
5. Elementary was rough but my favorite teacher was in 3rd grade.

I remembered I have Libby and decided to scroll through tonight.
This book is super adorable and if my nephew, who is 3 and once called himself a taco boy while eating tacos, doesn‘t have this he needs it ASAP! Even the end papers are adorable on this book.

krayoncolorz I love dragon loves tacos! The Nashville Children‘s Theater also did a play of it and it was amazing! I didn‘t love Dragons Love Tacos 2 as much. 2mo

I did end up going for a walk today, after-all. Granted, it was to attend Food Truck Friday, where I ate a bunch of tacos & drank a bunch of beer...but I still walked there! 😆 This is a shot of the pond near our house, taken on our walk home.

1/4 walks this week down. 🙌🏻

Dragons Love Tacos, written by Adam Rubin and illustrated by Daniel Salmieri is a funny MF book. It‘s a New York Times bestseller! It would be great for S or IR. Dragons LOVE tacos, who doesn‘t? But remember....if you don‘t keep the toppings mild you‘re in for some red-hot trouble! Storytelling this book would be fun for students, after you could even have a taco class party! This link will bring you to a website with different activities to go

giont along with the story. Such as, making a 3-D dragon, making tacos, singing dragons love tacos, playing charades, and tips for reading aloud! http://www.nbp.org/ic/nbp/programs/gep/dragon/ge_dragonmain.html I think this book could bring the whole school or community together by having one big taco party! UDL principle to fit that would be 8.3 (foster collaboration and community). Storytelling this book would cover 1.1 (offer ways of customizing the 5mo
giont display of information). ESOL strategy 50 (for content comprehension use a variety of comprehension activities) students can use prediction, and cause and effect worksheets with this story. They can also role play! #LAE3414sp19 5mo
Olsonashley19 I need to get this book! I've heard such great things and my nephew LOVES this story. I like your ideas for the activities especially getting the whole school involved! 4mo

This book is a New York Times Best Selling humorous F picture book I would use for RT or DR to enhance fluency and introduce vocabulary used within the book. I would also incorporate cause and effect lesson to ensure comprehension. The text will induce laughter as students learn about how much dragons love tacos, how much they hate spicy salsa, and the consequences of eating spicy salsa. #UCFLAE3414SP18

A wonderful NYT best seller fictional (F)book that connects children to the story with humor. Learn how to make friends with dragons by luring them with the two things they love most.... a party with a lot of tacos! Just be careful to hide the salsa otherwise, you have a red-hot disaster on your hands! Don‘t worry, if a disaster occurs, dragons are nice enough to help you rebuild your house. #UCFLAE3414SP18 See comments for more..

Dragons LOVE tacos, but they HATE spicy salsa. So what happens when you give them something spicy at their beloved taco party?

This book was funny and the kids loved it! They especially loved pointing at all the different dinosaurs on every page!

Definitely a great circle time book for my munchkins!

Day 5 of #riotgrams - #bookishgoods 💗 I don't have any tattoos (eep, needles!) so I went with the goods. I have an affinity for stuffed animals and am always thrilled when a favorite kids book is given a corresponding stuffed animal. ❤❤Pictured are a Pooh Bear, some Sandra Boynton critters, the Taco Dragon, the throw pillow my parents gave me for Christmas, a Library Bat, and Skippyjon Jones.
