    I found this title while working on a homeschool curriculum for chocolate and included it in the section on Language Arts showing how to write a report. Also could be featured in the History section because of the facts presented.

SUMMARY: Ms. Brandt has assigned the class a writing assignment for something that has special interest to each of her students. Garrett has chosen the topic of chocolate where he explores its history, how its manufactured, and why people has a love for this special treat. What is different about this book is that it is in the format of a school report including illustrations that look like a kid did them. Great inspiration to readers to do their own research and report. Includes scientific experiment: Why Does Chocolate Melt In Your Mouth? Steps to writing a report: 1. Pick a subject 2. Find resources 3. Keep notes of your findings 4. Organize your notes 5. Write your report 6. Edit your report 7. Add illustrations or pictures 8. Share with others ACITIVTY: Pick your own topic within the world of chocolate and write and illustrate your own report. Refer back to this book for ideas on how to organize your information, present your facts, and add illustrations. NOTE: Information can be shared like a science fair if there is a group of participants. Oral presentations could also be included to give kids practice in public speaking.

    This book is about a little girl who is given an assignment to write a report on anything of her choice. She chose chocolate. She found many interesting facts about chocolcate. She wrote about cocoa trees, what the beans on the trees look like, and that most of the cocoa beans came from Africa. She also wrote about how chocolate used to be very rare and only rich people could afford them. She also wrote that the Myans were the first chocoholics, that the Aztecs used it as money, and that chocola This book is about a little girl who is given an assignment to write a report on anything of her choice.

She also wrote that the Myans were the first chocoholics, that the Aztecs used it as money, and that chocolate is both bad and good for you. This is an interesting book. I would use it in my class as an example of a report, which they would be writing very soon. I would tell them that they could also choose their own topic and that as they has seen in this book, they could make a good report on just about anything.

    Set up like a child's report for school, this is a breeze to read through. I go back and for on this sort of NF--it's fun, but doesn't have that authentic, NF feel. The whole thing is too, I don't know, casual. That isn't to say kids won't like reading it. I'm certain they will. So, still interesting. My favorite bits of trivia: 1) chocolate was used as money 2)Milton Hershey was a pretty awesome guy. When he built his town, he kept workers in mind. He included parks, schools, a zoo, a community Set up like a child's report for school, this is a breeze to read through.

He included parks, schools, a zoo, a community center, and a hotel. Also, each worker house was individualized. Can you even imagine someone doing that today for factory workers? Gotta say I'm a fan.

    We love chocolate too so when I saw this book at the book fair we had to get it. Whit likes to read it and Ryan likes to eat chocolate every time we read it. Interesting thing we learned was that the Swiss are the biggest chocolate eaters in the world. They eat 22lbs per person. Wow!! Of course this doesn't count the chocolate that Jean's mom sends to me!!! I am sure this distorts the total. Lots of interesting facts about chocolate.

    Smart About Chocolate: A Sweet History is a very informative book concerning everything chocolate. The book is set up like a student's project, which gives it an easy and smooth transition between topics, as well as a sense of humor. The book is age appropriate and full of many different facts. I would recommend anyone of any age to read this, as there is sure to be some (chocolate) nugget of wisdom that the reader was unaware of.

    This book told the history of chocolate and where it came from. It starts out with a young girls report she did about chocolate. I loved how creative and well written the book was. The book kept my attention also. I liked that you could use this book with just about any subject in your class, there are so many uses for this book.

    This book was an informational book about the history of chocolate. I think that it would be great to use in the classroom because most children and even adults dont know much about the history of chocolate.

    This book taught even me things about chocolate that I had no idea of before. Very interesting way to teach children about things that they have in their lives but about things that they might not know.

    A great book that introduces the history of chocolate in the point of view of a young student reading her class report. A good book for children in third grade and up that gives fun information about the history of a favored snack.

    This book is written as a girl giving a report about chocolate. This book could be tied into many different topics not only chocolate. It discusses ancient civilizations, economics (chocolate money), recipes and much more.
