I Love You More...Than Chocolate
Written by Melanie Milburn
Illustrated by Cindy Coleman
Genre: Children's picture book
I received a free copy of the book for review, from the author. The opinions are my own not anyone else's. I promise I was not overcome by my lust for chocolate.
As I have mentioned before...I love chocolate. When I received an email about the book I jumped at the chance to read it. I love chocolate and really wanted to see how the title would be translated into a book for kids.
Basically, I Love You More...Than Chocolate, is a look at the night time ritual between a child and her mother. The mother tells her all the things she loves her more than, every few pages the title is repeated.
I really liked the book. My 7 year old also enjoyed the book! She was able to read it in just a few minutes. Each page has a sentence and a full page illustration of what the child is loved more than. It's a sweet little tale (pun intended) all of those with children will recognize. We all have little ritual sayings that our children can repeat from heart. The book comes with a CD of the book being read and then sang. I'm not keen on the CD ( I don't like kid music). Kids on the other hand will love it.
The only negative I have is some of the illustrations were not as 'good' as I would have liked. they seemed a little uneven. One page would have a beautiful drawing and then the next would be so-so. It didn't detract from the book, I just thought they could be better.
Overall, it's a sweet book. A great one to share with a small child you love...more than chocolate.
