From School Library Journal:

Grades 3-5--A creatively designed cover and inside papers tempt chocolate aficionados and curious children to learn more about the connection between rainforests and chocolate. The presentation is enlivened by color photos, illustrations, nostalgic black-and-white pictures, and varied typography and layout. These artistic touches, along with a kaleidoscope of fascinating information, result in a delightful book. Children learn how the seeds of the cacao trees are processed. The historical beginnings are mentioned-how the Maya, Aztecs, Conquistadors, and eventually Europeans all became enamored of this creamy confectionery treat. The author touches on chocolate's effect on health, how African slaves worked the cacao and sugar fields, and Milton Hershey's enormous role in the evolution of chocolate candies and candy bars. A wonderfully illustrative description, paired with step-by-step color photos, takes readers from cacao pod to candy bar. This book instills an appreciation and respect for rainforests and laborers, is fun to read and share, and will prompt a visit to the nearest candy counter. It is a welcome supplement to existing titles, such as Jacqueline Dineen's Chocolate (Carolrhoda, 1991; o.p.), Richard Ammon's The Kids' Book of Chocolate (Atheneum, 1987; o.p.), and Samuel G. Woods's Chocolate: From Start to Finish (Blackbirch, 1999).

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-6. Chocolate's fascinating story pairs with mouth watering photos in this handsome, picture-book-size overview published in association with the Field Museum of Chicago, where a related exhibit is currently on view. Striking spreads follow chocolate's history from Mayan and Aztec empires to the exclusive chocolate shops of eighteenth-century Europe to the mass-produced products of today. Burleigh, a self-professed chocolate lover, infuses his clear, engaging text with nearly reverent descriptions of chocolate in all its stages of production, but he doesn't shy away from the not-so-sweet elements of chocolate's story, particularly the slave labor that once powered the industry. Nicely reproduced photographs of chocolate-related artifacts and archival images mix with close-up shots that show production from plantation to factory to bon-bon box. For students seeking more material on the history of sweet treats, suggest Jules Older's Ice Cream [BKL F 15 02]. Gillian Engberg

Descripción Abrams, United States, 2002. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Few children (and few adults) know the fascinating history of chocolate. Found in tropical rainforests, the seeds of the cacao tree played an important role in the rituals of the Maya and the Aztecs. Then Cortes took them across the Atlantic, where chocolate become a fad with the smart sets of Spain and all of Europe. Finally chocolate traveled back to the Americas to become a treat for everyone. Kids will be thrilled to learn how the Aztecs served sacrificial victims a special drink, made of chocolate - mixed with blood. And they ll learn why the Spanish coined the word chocolate - they modified other words to avoid calling the tasty new drink cacalate. They ll also discover how years of drinking chocolate as a fatty, frothy beverage finally gave way to the creation of solid chocolate, ready to become bars, chips, brownies, and other goodies (but first people tried mixing it with cheese). Did you know that all the Tootsie Roll factories in the world produce more than 49 million Tootsie Rolls every day? Did you know that you couldn t buy chocolate in the summer until after about 1915, when refrigeration became available to businesses? Did you know that American soldiers carry chocolate as part of their rations - and have ever since World War I? Chocolate is both entertaining and informative. Lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched, Chocolate accompanies a major exhibition at The Field Museum, Chicago that will travel to ten other venues over five years.
