Pablo Taco by Mike Sandifer is an adorable story with some great messages and lessons for kids. Pablo Taco has no friends to play with on his first day of school. He manages to make one friend, Hamburger Dan, and they meet Billy Burrito who scares them by dropping Burrito bombs everywhere. Pozole Paul gets very angry when one falls on him. Both Hamburger Dan and Pablo Taco become friends by the time the playground bell rings and they go back to class being friends, laughing and smiling. The wonderful characters in the story will keep children engrossed and it also teaches them about acceptance and friendship.

The book is perfect to teach children about accepting others for what they are. Both Pablo Taco and Hamburger Dan cannot understand why anyone would not want to be their friend because they look different. The pictures are bright and colorful and they complement the story beautifully. They also give pace and movement to the scenes and breathe life into the four characters: Pablo Taco, Hamburger Dan, Billy Burrito and Pozole Paul. The book is a good bedtime storybook for parents and grandparents to read out to their kids and grandkids and can also be used in classrooms and school libraries for read aloud sessions. The book teaches kids new ideas, concepts, thoughts, and also some useful lessons when it comes to handling other people. Kids will enjoy reading the story and also the four colorful characters. It is a great story for kids.
