Cover Design: This cover is cute and catches the attention. Children will enjoy it. Just the title alone will make children want to see what happens in this story. Parents will enjoy some of the things that the child eats, though he has to have chocolate put on them. They may not like that aspect of it, but they'll be happy to see their children eat these kinds of things. Personally, I think putting chocolate on some of these things is disgusting. Your child may decide that they will eat it if you'll just give him a chance to try that. I have a feeling though that once they have had chocolate put on their broccoli, they will decide that that is not the way to eat it. Maybe the parents can give him a choice of how to go about doing it. Either they eat broccoli by itself and test it first, and then if they don't like it then they put chocolate on it and see how they like it. It could be a win- win for parent and child. 5 STARS

Concept: I must say I haven't read a children's book, or any other book for that matter, about a child who loves to put chocolate on everything. Not just on things like ice cream or candy or anything like that, but on the vegetables that he is forced to eat. Vegetables that he doesn't want to eat but will as long as you put chocolate on it. I can't imagine broccoli with chocolate on top of it. Sounds very unappealing to me, as I mentioned before, but a child may find it delicious. I know my niece when she was younger, would eat chocolate pudding with ranch dressing, shredded. Cheese, and sunflower seeds on the top of it. I never tried it because it looked disgusting, but she loved it. My mom told me I shouldn't knock it until I tried it, and so I don't knock it because I'm never going to try it. 5 STARS

Scene Development: Children's book you worry more with the scenes, sometimes more than you do with the words or the development of the character. A child notices the background of the page faster than they do the words. And definitely before they would ever worry about how the character is defined. When a child picks up a children's book or when a parent picks up a children's book, they are planning to have time reading before bed and just family time, time together. So, when the parent sits down to read to them at night, they're going to show the book to the child as they read. The child's going to focus on the images more than the words. In this book there are bright pages and lots of chocolate. That alone and the silly things that this character puts the chocolate on will have the child laughing and remembering that time with mom or dad before they went to sleep. 5 STARS

Character Development: As I mentioned above, I'm not really worried with the how the character is developed in a children's book. The main thing that I look for is that the character is easily relatable to a child. Otherwise, your children's book is going to fall flat with your audience! That is the last thing you want! That being said the character of this child is fun, easily That is the last thing you want! That being said the character of this child is fun, easily relatable. I don't see a reason why a child wouldn't be able to feel a connection in some way to this child and their love for chocolate. Most children love chocolate but get it very rarely due to that sugar high. 5 STARS

Entertainment Level: This book is a real quick read. Children will love it. Parents will laugh at the crazy things that this child does in his desire to have chocolate on everything. I was easily entertained for the very short time that it took to read this book. The reader can make this book fun and enjoyable to read. Even at the end of reading it, you could ask the child what they would like to try to put chocolate on that they don't normally want to eat but might if chocolate were put on. Like radishes or lettuce. Maybe meatloaf? Or chicken fettuccine Alfredo. A little chocolate on top of any of those sounds disgusting. A child may love it. This is a definite read you should get for your children. You'll laugh, they'll laugh. You'll have a lot of bonding and family time over this book. 5 STARS

 Overall, I give the chocolate kid 5 STARS. – Reviewed by award winning author, Shannon Simpson
