About the book: As part of the Homeschool Review Crew, I received a free copy of the book Milton Hershey: More than Chocolate, which is just one of 28 books in the Heroes of History series from YWAM Publishing. (See also the Christian Heroes: Then & Now series.) This is an autobiography of, yes, you guessed it, the man who started the company that makes Hershey Bars and Hershey Kisses, among other things. As the title states, though, his life was about more than just chocolate, and this is that story. Learn how he used his wealth to found a town for his workers, start a school for needy children, and start a foundation dedicted to education, culture, and health care. 

While we're at it, I should also let you know that there is also a downloadable unit study guide to go with the book, should you wish to use it. All study guides for the books can be found here. The guides are nice because they have different versions for small groups, classrooms, and homeschools. They contain questions to answer at the end of each chapter, ideas for hands-on activities, ideas for creative writing, etc. 

What are the pros of this book? These books are great. I really mean that. They are so well put together and interesting, yet easy to read. They are appropriate for older grade school kids and up. I am an adult (I think. LOL) and I absolutely love them. The Milton Hershey book is no different than the other books in the series. They basically follow the usual pattern of most biographies in that they follow the person's life from birth to death. I've never found anything inappropriate in any of the books. I had my daughter, Bear, read this book and she confirms that they are just as good as any of the others we've read. 

What's not to like? There is absolutely nothing not to like about this book or any of the other books in this series or the Christian Heroes: Then & Now series that we have read.

The Crazy Mom take: Like I said above, I love this series and also the Christian Heroes series. I'm going to say we've read at least a dozen of them, probably closer to 20. They are fantastic books. I didn't get a chance (yet) to read this one, but my daughter, Bear, did and said it was just as interesting and informative as the rest. Crazy coincidence, I wrote up this review yesterday, and when I later checked my Facebook, I saw that I had a memory from last year where I had posted a picture of two books from the Chrisitan Heroes that I had purchased! 

What's the bottom line? Regular Price: $9.99 YWAM Price: $7.50 

I am going to give Milton Hershey: More than Chocolate 5 out of 5 hearts!!! 💗💗💗💗💗   (Maybe I should make that kisses!)
