Five favorite contemporary children’s books leap off the shelf and onto the stage in Dragons Love Tacos, a brand-new musical revue by Theatreworks USA, America’s leading touring theater for young people. Recommended for grades K-5, the show is about one hour in length.
The five picture books are:
Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin: Dragons love all sorts of tacos—except spicy ones. When a boy throws his new dragon friends a spicy salsa taco party, red-hot trouble ensues. A New York Times bestselling phenomenon.
Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein: It’s bedtime for the little red chicken. Papa is going to read her a story, but the chicken can’t help interrupting. Will the chicken ever get to sleep?
The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds: A story about the creative spirit in all of us. Vashti can’t draw, but when her teacher says “Just make a mark and see where it takes you,” Vashti discovers she is an artist, after all.
Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride by Kate DiCamillo, Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen: Mercy, a porcine wonder, and Mr. Watson go for a ride every Saturday in Mr. Watson’s automobile. But one Saturday, guess who winds up behind the wheel?
Cowgirl Kate and Cocoa School Days by Erica Silverman, painted by Betsy Lewin: Cowgirl Kate and her loyal horse Cocoa are the perfect pair. They do everything together, until school is in session—and horses are not allowed.
