Review of I Love You More Than Chocolate by Melanie Milburn

I Love You More Than Chocolate by Melanie Milburn

I received this book from the author. The review is my honest opinion. No compensation was offered or received.
This is now one of my favorite children's books. I share it with children I love every day. The words are easy and fun. The illustrations, by Cindy Coleman, are awesome. The children I have shared this book with take great delight in it. They know when to say I love you more than chocolate! We have even kept it going after with made up things always coming back to I love you more than chocolate. This is an awesome children's book! It also comes with a CD of the author singing I love you more than chocolate. I highly recommend this book!
This would make a fantastic Christmas or Valentine's present! Seriously, it is a fun and engaging book that any child will treasure. I have read it to both boys and girls and it has been loved by all of them. It is what I like to call a memory maker. Years from now your child will rem…

Christmasin Miami
When you live in the hot tropical climate of South Florida, forget “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” and start thinking, “Feliz Navidad!” Doo-doo-doo-doo (read sound effects as humming and shake your hips here—this rhythm is not only catchy, it’s quick!) 
As a Miami native, I can well remember the days of running around outside on Christmas morning, bright-eyed and barefoot and absolutely thrilled the moment had FINALLY come.  I mean, my brothers and sister and I thought Christmas morning would never arrive! Bu…
