LOVE MONSTER AND THE LAST CHOCOLATE SUMMARY
Love Monster returned from his vacation, feeling reflective about his fun adventures. When he gets to his house, he sees a box of chocolates. Someone must have known they were his favorite!
Love Monster struggles with sharing the chocolates or eating them all for himself. When all of his worries add up, he decides it’s safer to just eat them alone.
Sitting there, in his chair, he reflects on his friends and how happy it would make them to eat with him. So, he jumps out the door and runs to share with his friends.
When his friends see him, they simply say to open the box. The box only has one chocolate left because they thought of him when he was away. Love Monster is reminded that when we stop and think of others, it reminds us that they stop and think about us, too.
