A children's story about kindness.
Reviewed in the United States on December 4, 2021
This was cute story with a great message. It follows the story about a little boy, who through a difficult time, is shown kindness in the form of chocolate. He carries that memory throughout his life and chooses to show kindness in times of loneliness. As he gets older, he remembers how sweet the world could be as he gets married and has a family of his own. The story comes full circle as is able to gift chocolate to a soldier going off to war. While this story sends a great message to children about kindness, about saving the world and about how sweet life can be, I think the book itself could have done with a bit more. For instance, I think rhyming would have really helped. The story was also not entirely cohesive to me, going from sharing candy to the chocolate cake to saving the world for children. Maybe I'm just missing the connections, but I think it could have been better.
