(Hamilton, NY – Feb. 2013) The Colgate Bookstore will host a Dragon Taco Party Saturday, Feb. 9, from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Class of 2003 Events Room (third floor) at 3 Utica St. This program is free and open to children of all ages, although the stories are mainly geared towards ages 4 through 8. Lunch will be provided for all children who attend, but space will be limited to 30 participants and advance sign-up is required at www.colgatebookstore.com/party.
The fun will begin with a dramatic reading by Bookstore staff of picture books featuring mythical flying (and sometimes fire-breathing) creatures. Stories will be followed by a Dragon Breath craft, a visit from a pet bearded dragon and a Make-Your-Own-Taco lunch.
The featured stories will include “Dragons Love Tacos,” by Adam Rubin. Dragons love tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa … oh, boy. You’re in red-hot trouble.
Also featured is “Not Your Typical Dragon,” by Dan Bar-el. When Crispin Blaze turns 7, he’s expected to breathe fire like all the other dragons. But instead of fire, he breathes a host of unusual things. With wry humor and whimsical illustrations, this is an ideal story for any child who can’t help being a little bit different.
