I Love You More Than Chocolate

Book Reviews

From Leilani Brandon – I’ve taught preschool and elementary school for over 30 years. After reading “I Love You More Than Chocolate” to preschool children, my feelings were confirmed. We really like this book! It is easy to relate to and interact with. The illustrations are fantastic and the entire feel of the story is loving and cozy. This is a book that can be read to very young children, older kids who will most likely memorize it and ‘read’ it back to you, and early learners who will be able to read it to you for real easily. I’d say this book should be in every early learning classroom and at home. It really is very fun and sweet. Thank you Melanie and Cindy for a delightful book to add to my collection!

5 out of 5  Stars from Charles Ashbacher at Amazon – “This book is about one of the most pleasant things that children can hear from their parents, being told that {daddy, mommy} loves them”.  Read More

4 the Love of Books
– Written originally as a song now in book form.  This rhyming book is just adorable.  If you have a child that needs that extra touch knowing you love them no matter what this is the book.  Also comes with a CD of the author singing the song.

The Paperback Pusuer
– This delightful children’s book is so much fun to read! …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.  Read More
My Tower of Books – This is such a sweet book!  I think I’ve read it almost 20 times to my kids after having it for about a week….A cd of the author singing the song that goes with the book is on the back cover….I believe we listened to this song the whole 45 minute drive to my parents’ house.  Pretty catchy tune!  A great book (and song) that kids will want to hear again and again!   Read More
