Kiraya Kestin's site: creationsbykiraya.com/ &  Fruit Scoop ~ A gang of very popular fruit gets the news that they are not the only fruit in town. See what happens when they find out they are about to be replaced by a new kind of fruit. This delightfully amusing story is a great way to introduce children to the Fruit of The Spirit and to teach them how to live their lives as Christians.
