As a children’s book author that has published three children’s books, I love supporting other authors that also have the same dream to publish their own children’s books. Chocolate Milk written by Alexandria Rizik and illustrated by Joey A Dimaguila is a sweet children’s book with a valuable lesson. The story begins with the scene of a mother cow who had just given birth to three baby calves. The names of the three calves are Penelope, Emerald and Star. They each look similar except Star who has a spot on her that perfectly resembled the shape of a star. When Mr. Jones, the farmer begins to milk the cows, both Penelope and Emerald produce perfect white milk. When Mr. Jones milks Star, he realizes the milk is brown. The two calves Penelope and Emerald tease Star about her discolored milk, which is hurtful to her. The farmer immediately contacts the local vet who doesn’t know what to think of the milk until he decides to taste it. It is chocolate milk and delicious! Once people hear about Star’s delicious chocolate milk, customers come from all over the area to purchase the milk. Star becomes quite famous for her milk and also very proud of being unique!
When reading the bio about the author, I became interested in Alexandria’s background as a filmmaker. I wanted to include an interview in the review so you can learn more about her unique short films, which are creative and interesting. To learn more about Alexandria visit her website here. Thank you Alexandria!
