For those of you who were worried that all I’d ever blog about again is climate change, women’s rights and gun control, I give you a charming, very funny children’s book about dragons eating tacos. Actually, the title of the book says it all, because “Dragons Love Tacos” is about exactly that.
Written by the very witty Adam Rubin and beautifully illustrated by Daniel Salmieri, “Dragons Love Tacos” isn’t just fun to read, but it’s also highly re-readable (is that a word? If not, it should be!) and best off all, it’s short!
Seriously, “Dragons” is the perfect bedtime length book for kids: meaty enough to feel substantial and yet not so long that you’ll need a bookmark. I know that sounds like a weird thing to be happy about, but, considering the fact that Greta usually crawls into bed with at least three books, I’ll take short, cool books over epic poems anytime!
And books about crazy, Mexican food loving dragons? What’s not to love? Rubin and Salmieri had me at “tacos!” Best new kids book ever!

Hey guys! I know, I’ve been away for much longer than usual this time, but, it’s been a busy summer. And only now, as things begin to normalize somewhat on the homefront (Greta is in pre-school now four days a week for two hours a day) do I find myself with a spare moment to blog.
So, what better way to rejoin the blogsophere than by touting the glories of National Taco Day?! That’s right, amigos, today is all about the taco, and though we’ll be celebrating by making delicious carne asada tacos at home, I encourage the rest of you to head out there and get your taco on!
And as you can see from the ad below, El Torito is even offering a free taco to anyone who utters the words: “Secret Taco”. So, how can you lose? Que viva los tacos!
