Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6At age 18, in 1876, Hershey started his own candy business, and, after some failures, went on to build a town and a chocolate factory in a cornfield and named them after himself. Today, Hershey, PA, attracts millions of tourists. Thousands of orphaned and disadvantaged young people have graduated from the Milton Hershey School, which he and his wife founded. And Hershey's candies are recognized worldwide. This biography is a well-rounded presentation that shows the successes and difficulties of this entrepreneur's life. The black-and-white somewhat grainy illustrations are reminiscent of photographs of the period. Average fare about the life of a highly creative man.Pamela K.
