#Review: Warm Chocolate by Eve Coberly aka Flitzy Books #kidsbooks
It's creamy. It's smooth. It's chocolate. Everything about this classic winter drink is SO right-except for one little thing...its name. Join funny boy Marvin Peters as he explains to his classmates before winter break why he thinks it's time for the WARM CHOCOLATE revolution....are you ready?
This was a cute little rhyming book for children. The author set the book during the Christmas season but it could be read at any time during winter. I liked the story line of why sharing "warm" chocolate is fun.
Although the rhyming was cute and worked well for the book, I was not overly impressed with the illustrations. They were simple line drawings but colorful too. The illustrations were underneath the written parts on what looked like torn sheets of paper. This was different from books I have read before but seemed cheesy to me and not too professional.
One thing I did like about the illustrations was the fact that some of them were drawings of real things from the author. In the back of the book, she included a seek and find which was kind of fun to go back through and look for. I almost wished though, they would have been the real photos!
The other thing she includes in the back of the book was the recipe to make "warm" chocolate. Great!
I am giving this book a 3 as I did like the story and was glad to see she included the recipe.
