Wally and the Sweet Mountain Candy Factory is a children’s picture book by Meghan E Christensen. Today Wally started working at his family’s Sweet Mountain Candy Factory. He wants to become a candy maker like his dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather. Grandpa gives him his first uniform, a candy-making hat and two candy hammers. Peter and the other workers give demonstrations of their jobs by showing him the various stages of candy making: mixing the ingredients, stretching and rolling, adding sprinkles and baking it. Now it’s Wally’s job to use his hammers and break the candy into small pieces so it can be packaged. He loves his job and things are running smoothly until the conveyor belt begins to move too quickly, causing chaos. Wally investigates and is surprised when he sees who caused the problem. Will he be able to solve it?

I’m sure kids will be anxious to make their own candy with adult supervision from the easy recipe included in the picture book. They will also be able to create their family tree from one that’s included. There is a selection of questions to ask and tasks that make the story more engaging to children, ages 3-8. The story also teaches children how to be responsible like Wally and learn to solve problems when they occur. In fact, there are several things one can learn by reading Wally and the Sweet Mountain Candy Factory. Meghan E Christensen has written a fun, educational story with wonderful sketches. Have a sweet time reading.
