Independent bookstores are a community hub, a center for discovery, a portal to other worlds. They connect us through stories, author events, and the perfect book recommendation. Now, because of COVID-19, independent bookstores need you as much as you have always needed them.

Support independent bookstores by sharing your favorite thing in the world—books!—with your loved ones.

There is one VERY important piece of information to know before you read this book: Dragons HATE spicy salsa. They love tacos, but under NO circumstances can you give them spicy salsa….. So when you’re throwing a Taco Party for a group of dragons, keep this important information in mind. Dragons Love Tacos is the story of when that mistake is made….UH-OH. This book is ridiculously funny and a fantastic read-aloud for all…as long as you keep the spicy salsa away from any dragons!!!

And of course, don’t miss the sequel, Dragons Love Tacos 2!
