Want to host a dragon taco party? Check this out!

October 3, 2016 by



When “Dragons Love Tacos” was published in 2012, it became an instant New York Times bestseller. Author Adam Rubin and illustrator Daniel Salmieri were described by one reviewer as “two of the weirdest, funniest guys working in kids’ lit today” — and their preschool audience responded to their silliness with giggles and delight.

web-newthumb-Reading-LogoNow preschoolers in Concordia will be introduced to Rubin and Salmieri’s how-to guide for would-be dragon taco party hosts.

Megan Nulf will read “Dragons Love Tacos” at the next “Reading with Friends,” set for Friday, Oct. 14, at Neighbor to Neighbor, 103 E. Sixth St., Concordia.

The “Reading with Friends” storytimes for children ages 3, 4 and 5 all begin at 10 a.m. Each session includes playtime and a snack, plus children receive a free copy of that day’s book to take home. Parents, grandparents and other caregivers are invited to enjoy coffee and snacks downstairs at the day center for women while the story is being read upstairs.

There is a limit of 30 children per session so parents need to register for each session in advance by calling Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or emailing neighbortoneighbor@csjkansas.org.

The monthly program has been part of Neighbor to Neighbor’s regular offerings since September 2012. The remaining sessions for the 2016-17 school year are Nov. 11, Dec. 9, Jan. 13 (2017), Feb. 10, March 10 and April 7.

“Reading with Friends” is funded in part by a grant from the Dane G. Hansen Fund, through the Community Foundation for Cloud County.
