Nonfiction Monday

Just for the fun of selection is "Chocolate: a sweet history" written by Sandra Markle and illustrated by Charise Harper.

Markle collects a wealth of detail about chocolate -- from its history among the Aztecs to its economic importance as a modern African export -- nutrition facts -- even a tasty recipe and organizes it all in an easy-to-read style fashioned like a student's school report. Colorful illustrations add to the light-hearted feel of this informative book.

I am sure this is a delicious read :) Love chocoloate! Shouldn't all girls know the history of their favorite food?
