“Once upon a time in the biggest and deepest forest you can imagine, there was a Little Cocoa Bean. Scattered on the ground with his brothers and sisters, still covered in the sticky white pulp that is the fruit of the cocoa pod.”

Gift of the gods

Using the story of Chocolate, we deliver entertaining educational experiences to Primary age children at school and in their homes. These experiences meet National Curriculum requirements across a range of subjects from science, history, geography, home economics and particularly PHSE. Our workshops help children to talk about challenging life experiences and find positive ways to respond to them.

The Book

Set in Central America at the time of the Spanish conquest, The Little Cocoa Bean tells the story of a talking cocoa bean and his animal friends. The characters explain the history of the Mayan and Aztec civilizations as well as exploring themes of purpose, friendship, self-belief, feeling different, estrangement and reconcilation, and inner experience.

A mission to educate

We offer schools and homeschoolers a range of activities from individual workshops to programmes with a series of workshops and lesson plans. We can also create programmes to fit your needs.

Who doesn’t like chocolate? The story of chocolate shows how every food — everything — has a story. Our workshops include making and tasting chocolate, involving kids in exciting and rewarding activities while they learn.

Learning and fun at home

We believe that learning shouldn’t just be something that happens at school but can be a pleasurable experience in its own right. Our holidays and at-home programmes turn Little Cocoa Bean’s story into fun activities for after-school and holidays clubs, and home workshops.
