I loved this book! It's a combination of the history of candy bars, the background for the author's addiction to candy, and the author touring candy factories. Sometimes witty, sometimes poignant, always interesting. I've made several people read it, and they've all loved it.
I read this book while pregnant with my daughter, because my brother's girlfriend loved it. while it was interesting, it filled me with guilt about the way I would have to raise my daughter. My husband and I did "attachment parenting," but after reading this book, I felt guilty for not doing things as described in this book. This is attachment parenting (and community attachment parenting) to the extreme. It is not possible in our culture, unless you live with many other people under one roof, to never put your baby down until he or she is 2 years old.
It's definitely worth a read, but don't let it fill you with guilt about your own parenting style.
Both of my daughters have loved this book. My husband, my eight-year-old and I have all memorized the words, so we often repeat it to our toddler if we can't locate the book (usually under the couch). I strongly recommend this book for any baby. Great pictures, great text.
