    1. I think this would be a great set of poems to read around Valentine's Day as chocolate is often associated with Valentine's Day. I also think it would be great (food allergies and preferences permitting) to give the students a little bit of chocolate candy after reading them as well.

    2. I loved the poems. They made me crave chocolate except for the chocolate mixed with fruit flavors. Fruit and chocolate do not mix well with me. I think it is weird. The second poem was funny, but I will not tell you.

    3. Although I love chocolate, I didn’t love this book. I felt the poetry was hard to follow along with and I can imagine it would be even harder for me if I was reading the book myself.

    4. I love chocolate and this book was all about chocolate. The poetry was well written and I could picture myself in the other person's place. I could picture myself going home and drinking chocolate milk after school or holding someone's hand and then not sharing the last chocolate kiss. I would read this book to children of all ages and maybe even to adults. This was a very good book and I definitely recommend it.

    5. Adoff writes about poems dealing with the love of chocolate. The wording and shape of the poems stand out the most in this book. The spacing of some important words and lines are unique. The illustrations are all related to chocolate or have the color of chocolate. I wouldn't be surprised if readers craved chocolate after reading these poems! I would recommend this book to early and middle elementary aged students.

    6. This would be a good book for poetry lessons, or more useful to teach styles of writing. There are several poems, all of course related to chocolate, and they demonstrate different ways to write poems. Students would laugh to some of these poems and agree with others. It would be great to show examples and then have your students write their own poetry.

    7. This book is full of poems about chocolate. It's great to read to children because it can be silly. This is a good way to start off a poetry lesson. When children learn that poetry can be about anything they are much more willing to write it. This book is a great way to show that. It is good for any age.

    8. Great poetry book!! This book incorporates the love of all kinds of chocolate with everyday emotions! It was a very fun read to see how the author uses different types of chocolate desserts to relate to everyday senarios.

    15. This book was full of different poems that show children that all poetry doesn't rhyme. It would be interesting to incorporate this into a poetry lesson for my students. It also includes poetry that isn't structured like students normally think so they can see something new and different.

    16. This book has a lot of different poems in it. All of the poems are chocolate themed. This would be great for teaching students about poetry. A teacher could even bring chocolate into his or her class for their students.
