Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6?At age 18, in 1876, Hershey started his own candy business, and, after some failures, went on to build a town and a chocolate factory in a cornfield and named them after himself. Today, Hershey, PA, attracts millions of tourists. Thousands of orphaned and disadvantaged young people have graduated from the Milton Hershey School, which he and his wife founded. And Hershey's candies are recognized worldwide. This biography is a well-rounded presentation that shows the successes and difficulties of this entrepreneur's life. The black-and-white somewhat grainy illustrations are reminiscent of photographs of the period. Average fare about the life of a highly creative man.?Pamela K.

This booked was purchased for my third grade son to use for a biography book report. It was perfect. Not to hard, relevant facts and enjoyable for a parent to read along with. My son took a long a box of Hershey bars to class and passed them out after his oral report. The book report and the candy got a great review.

After many trips to Hershey Park we wanted to read about how it all got started. The book was read together as a family and was very enjoyable. It was not too long and not too short. It was perfect for my son to do a book report on. Milton Hershey had a very interesting life.

Students in my class were introduced to the concepts of risks and rewards as we learned about the choices an organization can make. We also learned about the social and economic outcomes of these choices. Chocolate is an accessible way to connect to 9- and 10-year-olds.

Nearly everyone has heard of Hershey's chocolates, and most people have eaten either a Hershey Bar or a Hershey's Kiss. Milton Snavely Hershey (1857-1945) was born near the little town of Derry Church, PA, to Henry and "Fanny" Hershey who were of German-Swiss heritage and members of Pennsylvania's Mennonite community. After receiving his education at the one-room schoolhouse in Derry Church, the Rockridge School, and four other schools, and being fired as an apprentice to a newspaper editor, Milton became an apprentice in Lancaster, PA, with a confectioner named Joe Royer and learned the trade of candy making.
Hershey tried to get established in the candy business at Philadelphia, PA; Denver, CO; Chicago, IL; New Orleans, LA; and New York City, NY. However, he was not successful until he returned to Lancaster and founded the Lancaster Caramel Company. Following a visit to England, he decided to switch the focus of his business to chocolate, bought a huge cornfield outside his birthplace of Derry Church, and built a chocolate factory. To provide for his workers, he created the town of Hershey with comfortable homes, an inexpensive public transportation system, a quality public school system, and extensive recreational and cultural opportunities. Also, he used his fortune to establish a school for underprivileged children and made Hershey into a tourist attraction with many points of interest such as a visitor's center, a zoo, an amusement park, and a museum. Hershey married Kitty Sweeney in 1898, but she died prematurely in 1915, and the couple had no children.
This book is one of the "Creative Minds Biography" series from the Lerner Publishing Co. We visited Hershey, PA, last year, and I picked up this book in the Milton S.
