# The Coffee Bean for Kids

## A Simple Lesson to Create Positive Change

Jon Gordon

From the bestselling authors of The Coffee Bean, inspire and encourage children with this transformative tale of personal strength

The Coffee Bean for Kids tells the inspiring story of Gavin, a young boy with the difficult task of starting school in a new town. Gavin's teacher, Mrs. Spring, teaches him the story of the carrot, the egg, and the coffee bean. The environments we find ourselves in, like a pot of boiling, hot water, can change, weaken, or harden us, and test who we truly are. We can be like the carrot that weakens in the pot or like the egg that hardens. Or, we can be like the coffee bean and discover the power inside us to transform our environment. Energized by his teacher's lesson, Gavin embarks on an enlightening journey to transform the world around him.

In The Coffee Bean for Kids, authors Jon Gordon and Damon West offer lessons to children to help them:

* Impact the environment around them

* Improve their own outlook

* Become a leader who creates positive change

* Make new friends

* Become a positive influence by sharing smiles, kindness, and positive energy

Perfect for parents, teachers, and children who wish to overcome negativity and challenging situations, The Coffee Bean for Kids teaches readers about the potential that each one of us has to lead, influence, and make a positive impact on others and the world.
