About the Book

Milton S. Hershey never went beyond the fourth grade but learned how to make candy and opened his own business at a young age. After several failures, he finally succeeded and made taffy and caramels. When he was introduced to chocolate, he worked hard and discovered how to make milk chocolate. His first Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar was followed by Hershey’s Kisses and other chocolate goodies. He married but had no children. Before she died, his wife, Kitty, encouraged him to build a home and school for orphaned children. He became a millionaire and traveled to many countries and built a large factory in Hershey, Pennsylvania, as well as a complete town, amusement park, zoo, and pavilion. He died at age eighty-eight, leaving a legacy of chocolate and a full life of accomplishments.
