Review of This Is A Taco 

This book was supposed to be on squirrels in general but it is about a squirrel named Taco. Since it loves eating Tacos and it’s also called Taco. This Is A Taco is humorous and has beautiful graphical artwork.

My feelings about the book This Is A Taco 

I loved this book. Period. When I was a kid I used to read books for children but this was my first children book in adulthood and I really loved it. This book is informative and humorous. There are facts about squirrels and it is a fun read.

Characters in the book This Is A Taco 

This book is about a squirrel, Taco. As the narration begins with the predator of a squirrel, the squirrel steps in and changes the narrative because it did not like it. This teaches you that when the story is about you, you take the initiative and tell your story. Rather than discussing the predators of a squirrel, the squirrel talks about what it loves the most, that is Tacos. Taco also mentions how is it different from other squirrels.

What I didn’t like –

There isn’t a thing to dislike in this book.

Predictability & Narration –

A book about an animal, cool, that is what I thought before reading this book. The story took a U-turn when the squirrel Taco took over and told its story in its own words. I was astounded and loved the lesson behind it.

Verdict –

This is definitely a 5-star read. It is a must pick with the beautiful artwork, humor, moral, and information. It is for adults and not only for kids.
Have you read any children books in adulthood? Let me know in the comments below.
