Ages: 3 – 7

Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin comes in next on the list.

A favorite of mine, I had no idea dragons loved tacos SO much until I read this book.

They love all kinds of delicious tacos, like chicken tacos, beef taco, BIG tacos, and tiny tacos.

They even love tacos with salsa, but salsa is bad for dragons.

Fiery, funny must-read.

Stick and Stone by Beth Ferry holds its own as 8th of the top 10 kids’ Kindle picture books this year.

Once upon a time… I have always wanted to write that, but it only half applies to this story.

You see, in the beginning, Stick and Stone were separate, alone, and lonesome.

However, when Stick rescues Stone from a bad situation, they become the best, albeit most unlikely, of friends.
