Dragons Love Tacos

Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa… well, watch out!! The silly, dragon dancing journey about first impressions and trying new things is a recipe for laughs and fun!
