The Great Kapok Tree

The Great Kapok Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rain Forest - Lynne Cherry

The Great Kapok Tree is a sweet book to read with children. The illustrations are great and the story is even better. The author of this book actually wrote this book sitting in the rain forest so you can grasp a feel for what an actual rain forest looks like.  You could do many, many things with this book, but I might would use it in my classroom when talking about the rain forest in Science. You could also use this book when discussing photosynthesis or the life cycle in your classroom, because the child tells the man he can't chop down the tree because everything that is living, depends on that tree. I would use this book in my 3rd grade class. The intended audience for this book is K-3.
