I Love You More Than Chocolate | Melanie MilburnYou probably remember Melanie’s first children’s picture book, “I Love You More…Than Chocolate!”  This book was also first a song, and prior to that it was a bed time ritual for Melanie and her daughter.  Melanie made sure her daughter knew she was loved, and told her she loved her more than anything, even chocolate.  Her daughter knew Melanie was a chocoholic, so she knew she was very loved!
