Review # 88: I Love You More... Than Chocolate by Melanie Milburn

     I Love You More... Than Chocolate is an adorable illustrated children's book about a little girl who wants to know how much her mommy loves her, so her mommy sings her to sleep with "I love you more than _____", a song about how she loves her daughter more than anything.

     This delightful children's book is so much fun to read! I loved the wording used as well as the rhyming scheme, and so did my friend's daughter. Cindy Coleman's illustrations are beautiful, lively, colorful, and engaging, I liked the color palette as well as her depiction of a "multi-ethnic" mother and daughter. It was easy for my friend's daughter to follow along, and by the third time reading through it, she was pointing at the pictures and telling me what was in them, (chocolate, apple pie, leaves, etc...). I liked to see my her as excited about the pictures as I was. As an added bonus, there was also a music CD included with the song version of I Love You More... Than Chocolate, which got her even more excited. For kids, it's all about getting excited and making the book fun and interactive, and that's what Melanie Milburn has succeeded in doing. I recommend this book to young children and the people that read to them.

Rating: On the Run (4.75/5)

*** I received this book from the author (Bostick Communications) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
