What would you think if all of a sudden, everything (and I do mean everything) that went into your mouth or touched your lips turned to chocolate? Eggs, bacon, water, milk, juice, your leather gloves, spoons, forks, trumpets…Everything! You’d probably feel like little John: At first he’s beyond thrilled! Hooray! No more nasty food!! But after awhile, sadly, you’d realize you just can’t live on chocolate. But how did it happen and how can he get rid of it? Many silly things happen and it’s a fun ride seeing what John does as one terrible thing after another happens to him. Perfect for reading aloud (as long as you know to expect a lot of giggling!) or for any kid who just can’t get enough chocolate! (Ok, so I think that covers all of us!)
I read this aloud to my kids amidst a great deal of giggling and a desire to eat chocolate! The theme of ‘too much of a good thing’ was a great lesson and we could talk about why having too much of what we loved isn’t always a good thing! A character is turned to chocolate, but it is made right in the end.
