"Milton Hershey: Chocolate King, Town Builder"

Charnan Simon

Milton Hershey created the Hershey Company and became famous for making chocolate. Milton had been dreaming of making chocolate all his life. He tried many times to create a successful company, but kept on failing. But Milton was stubborn and continued to set up companies. It took time. Finally, Hershey succeeded. To find out more about Hershey's success, read this book. I recommend this book to third and fourth grade chocolate freaks.
