This is a phenomenal book about the importance of the rain forest and its' trees. The boss man gives a man an ax and tells him to cut down the Kapok tree. After chopping a while, the man falls asleep on the ground by the tree. All kinds of animals whisper in his ear the importance of the tree and the rain forest and for him to not cut down the tree. This book would be best for 2nd-5th grade students. After reading this book to my class, I would have them write a letter to people who destroy the rain forest. This book has great vocabulary words as well.
