Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Red, Yellow, Green and Blue are popular colors of the tasty chocolate candy known as "M&M's." Together they help tell the story of chocolate, from its discovery about the cacao tree to its various uses throughout history. The processes of harvesting cacao and the inventions of chocolate milk, the chocolate bar and chocolate cake are among some of the interesting discoveries discussed. For an added treat, the book comes with a small sheet of M&M stickers. Children will love the colorful illustrations as well as the comic style commentary provided by Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue. Most parents will also find the book interesting, but they may not wholly agree with the allusion that chocolate can be good for you. 2001, Charlesbridge, $16.95. Ages 8 up. Reviewer: Denise Daley
