Growing up, my brother and I spent a lot of time at our Nana's house playing with our cousins. Those are some of my most favorite childhood memories. So, when I read that this book was about a brother and sister making mud tacos with their cousins at Nana's house, I had to buy this for my children. When I read it to my 3 year old son and 5 month old daughter, my son thought that mud tacos were hilarious and the colorful illustrations held my daughter's attention the whole time I was reading. We really loved this book and I will be purchasing more copies to give as gifts to my nephews and nieces.

This book is great for a cooking lesson! I did it with a group of 6 children and they had a blast! It even shows the ingredients they use to make tacos in the book. The kids loved the characters and loved making tacos! It is also a great way to introduce the Mexican culture!

This is a wonderful, funny story that all ages will enjoy. Mario and Marissa, two very enterprising siblings decide to make mud tacos using leaves for tacos and mud and worms for filling. This in turn makes them want some REAL tacos, so they implore their grandmother to make them. She agrees and when they shop for the necessary ingredients, they also have to take their cousins, Rosie and Chico along. Chico, a bit of a bully has some fun scaring Mario and Marissa and their curly tailed husky. When the husky makes it clear SHE is not scared by Chico's bullying antics, Mario and Marissa decide that maybe Chico might like some mud tacos.

A very funny story with delightful pictures. To make a good thing even better, it comes in Spanish as well. Mud Tacos Spanish Language Edition

Mud Tacos! is a really fun book to read. Mario and Marissa captured a great childhood story about family and fun. The illustration is absolutely amazing. We read this book to our 9 month old daughter and she loves the bright colors and pictures. If you want a fun and exciting book to read with the family, this is it! I am buying this one for the kids in my family for Christmas. Love it!

This book is for everyone!! Just got the book last night, and we have already read it 5 times! My 4 year old loves the storyline about "pretending," and my 1 year old seemed to enjoy the vivid illustrations. I love that I am reading a book to my children that features the latin culture and promotes bonding with extended family. This book definitely brought back memories of the good times I shared with my cousins at my grandmother's house as a child. I am buying several more copies of this book today to give to my cousins and their children!

Bought this hoping for a fun, quick read for my daughter, but ever since she read it she's been speaking in tongues and trying to raise the dead. I can't be sure but I think the apocryphal subject matter of the story might be to blame. Hopefully Mr. Lopez will respond to my inqueries soon, and we can get this whole situation sorted out.

-a concerned dad

UPDATE:

I've done some investigative research, and know that I know of Mario Lopez's past as an ordained minister in the church of Satan, I no longer feel feel his writings are an appropriate influence on children. Parents be warned!
