Did you know that Dragons have a favorite food? Well,l they do and its TACOS!!!! Rubin creates a creative way to illustrate food preferences and restrictions to children. Dragons love tacos and throughout the book, the different kind of ways tacos can be made are illustrated. But they cannot have salsa or any spicy food because it upsets their stomachs. Which happens by accident and illustrates why certain foods should be avoided to keep a healthy and happy dragon or stomach.
This book can help children identify their own eating preferences and what they don't like. The dragon can be their metaphoric animal in how to explain how their stomachs feel when they eat certain items. This can help them to identify what they like and don't. Be able to voice how they feel after they eat it.
The illustrations are creative and colorful. The dragons are all unique with different colors, shapes, and sizes. The boy and dog duo are also drawn and written so the reader can connect with them.
