You can use this book in the reading/literacy center, as an emergent reader, read aloud or for group reading. It is also appropriate for a great (hi)story sequence activity.

You can print it or use with your laptop or projector in class.

Vocabulary Info: cacao vs. cocoa (official definitions)

Cacao: pronounced Ka-Kow. Refers to the tree, its pods and the beans inside.
