To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Very disappointed. I loved Dragons Love Tacos. I feel the language in this book models a rude and sarcastic manner of speaking. I made the mistake of not reading it silently myself first and had to censor my way through it with my 3 year old. The concept of a kid turning himself into a robot with a crazy sauce recipe is funny, but they get it all wrong in that the robot the kid becomes is destructive and capable of turning its parents to smithereens and going on a destructive rampage. Perhaps the author thinks rude, destructive, foul mouthed children are cute? I do not.
I love the Author so I assumed this would be great. I was wrong! It starts off with the boy taking things from others and smashing others' toys, which would be fine if the matter was handled in the story. Why would we want to show our children a bad kid whose behavior isn't even acknowledged. Returning cost almost as much as the cost of book. So now I have to keep it.
WTH is this? I am so confused by this book and my toddler is, too. For context, I also don't like Star Wars so maybe this is more for people who like sci-fi. There is a fold out page that is reflective. The rest is mostly black, white, gray, and orange. I bought it because we think Dragons Love Tacos is funny. This is just too non-linear for me to read to my kiddo.
The cover, the description, and the majority of reviews for this book are extremely misleading and I'm very surprised there aren't more complaints about this. This book does not turn into a robot as stated, promised and reviewed. Inside the book there is a second jacket for the book that, in a confusing and very difficult manner, turns into a second book...not a robot. In the story line, which is very thin and not very interesting, there are robot transformations, which is how I'm assuming this misleading play of words was allowed. But please do not spend money on this book based on the incorrect description. We bought this for our robot loving 4 year old, thinking there would be a pullout or pop out of some sort that literally turned into some sort of robot...since that is what is stated on the cover and in the description. This is NOT THE CASE. There are many robot books that are much more interesting and fun that I would recommend over this one.
My child loved the book Dragons Love Tacos, but this book just left her confused (us too). There really isn't much of a plot and there is no real lesson. I don't have high expectations for the plots of children's books, but I do expect them to teach my kid something or at a minimum make them laugh a lot. This book completely missed the mark for us.
Yes the book turns into a robot. If you are into such gimmicks buy the book, but if you are looking for a funny or educational book that your kids might enjoy, there are much better books out there.
I was excited to give this to my five year old son after seeing the demo on the website and reading the rave reviews. I read it before giving it to him and it's a total disappointment. Kid squirts robo sauce on stuff and they turn into robots. No adventures being robots, nothing. The story just ends. I am returning it and will buy a book with a more substantive story with an actual beginning, middle, and end. This was just a waste of time and money.
This book is awful. As a early childhood educator, I had high hopes for the author of Dragon's Love Tacos, but this book just stinks. The kid's only want to pull the robot pages out and are never interested hearing in the actual story. Buy Big Bad Bubble or Dragon's Love Tacos (the original) by Adam Rubin instead.
I am a mother of 5 kiddos, my oldest being 9. I read about the great reviews of this book and was excited to order it for my 5 year old boy. But when I read it, I could not understand why it was so highly rated. My 5 year old wouldn't get the plot at all- And actually, I didn't think there really was one anyways. It was not written for young kids. My 9 year old would have gotten it but he wouldn't have wanted to read it because its "a little kid book". I ended up giving the book away. I'm hoping someone might enjoy it, because we didn't.
