I have to thank Tundra Books and Sylvia for sending this book to me.
I knew that Michael would love this book. I was right. Michael said the story is about him.
The book is about a little boy who loves chocolates and I mean he LOVES chocolate. The book talks about the different kinds of chocolate (milk, semi sweet)and the varities of chocolate (caramel, almond). Its mentioned that chocolate can make you feel better when you have a bad day or need cheering up. Chocolates are used in celebrations such as making a new friend, in love, when you get hurt or when you are sad. Isn’t that true? When we are sad that is the first thing most people go for and when we celebrate we use chocolate.
This is a great book that leads to discussions with your child. It asks what’s your chocolate eating style? Are you a dainty chocolate dabbler or a monster muncher? Are you a messy chocolate musher or a neat nibbler? It also asks how do you eat chocolate do you eat it by the handful or one at a time? Michael said he was a monster muncher and depending what kind of chocolate it is he will eat either by the handful or one at a time.
Our favorite part was “Why do I love chocolate? Because it makes my mouth happy, my tummy happy and my heart happy.”
The book is well written. The illustrations are done very well and there is alot of brown used I guess its to emphasis the chocolate theme.
The only thing after reading the book it makes you want some chocolate. So be warn before reading this book make sure you have some chocolate on hand.
When we opened the book we realized that the dust jacket had pictures on the back of the book. I am not sure if this is just a Tundra Book thing but I thought that was really cute thing to do.
