Why do adults get to review all the books?
Kids, like six-year-old Desmond, have some thoughts and takeaways, too. And they’re hilarious – and honest.
“Never give dragons hot salsa and never eat tomatoes,” is Desmond’s advice after reading the book, Dragons Love Tacos.
He gives the book gobs of stars. Oh, and he suggests you might eat tomatoes in a frittata, because you can’t really taste them in all the eggy goodness. And he recommends pairing watermelon and agua fresca with tacos.
Wait, what? Who IS this kid?
