Taco is a squirrel, and he loves to eat tacos. But he has some trouble getting that across in way that keeps him out of danger in the adorable picture book This Is a Taco. Author Andrew Cangelose and Illustrator Josh Shipley have put together a fun story that teaches kids not just about the squirrels that are running around in their backyards but also about picking up the pen and finding your own story.
Taco, the squirrel, teaches us all about how to take our stories in a new direction. He makes mistakes and faces dangerous situations, but he figures out how to keep writing his own story and never gives up. This Is a Taco is a creative, engaging, beautifully illustrated book that is fun for kids of all ages (including mine, which I will not be saying out loud).
This Is a Taco is a makes a great gift for parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, babysitters and nannies, and anyone else who cares for and reads to kids. This is a new classic, and it will live on bookshelves and in readers' hearts for a long time to come.
