Blue Frog: The Legend of Chocolate
A long, long time ago, the Sun God spent his days enjoying a very special secret treat: rich, dark cacao. Unlike the Wind God, the Sun God did not want to share this heavenly food with the creatures of the Earth. One day, the Wind God transformed himself into the Rana Azul, or Blue Frog, and he taught the children of the Earth where to find the secret cacao beans through song. A recipe for hot chocolate and a sprinkling of Spanish words and phrases enhance this intricately illustrated foodie fable.

This is a version of the Aztec fable of how humans got chocolate. Moira was more taken with this than I was. She especially liked the hot chocolate recipe in the back, and showed it to everyone who came over for a couple of weeks. Read full review
