  1. Great resource! I recently tried to make dinner more exciting by modeling the meal after Dinosaurs Love Tacos, a favorite book around here. It didn’t exactly work, but I’m going to keep trying!

    1. Thanks! That’s a great idea! You could also try tying the taco theme into other routines like wrapping a baby doll in a blanket ‘like a taco’ or wrapping up in a towel after bath ‘like a taco’. The more we use fun, food language the more familiar it becomes and that can help make the whole idea of tacos feel more safe and comfortable. Good luck!
