Teaching Perservance through the book Kayla and the Chocolate Tree


Have you ever felt like giving up? If you have felt that way you can be sure at some point in your life your children will feel that too.

In Kayla and the Chocolate Tree, Kayla gave up and went home discouraged. But she didn’t stay discouraged. She talked things out, she thought of new ways to tackle her problems, and she tried them.

Teaching Moment: There are times in life when you are trying to do something but nothing works. You might get discouraged and give up. Take the time needed to regroup and find a new way to tackle your problem.
