The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry

The author and artist Lynne Cherry journeyed deep into the rain forests of Brazil to write and illustrate her gorgeous picture book The Great Kapok Tree: A Tale of the Amazon Rain Forest (1990). One day, a man exhausts himself trying to chop down a giant kapok tree. While he sleeps, the forest’s residents, including a child from the Yanomamo tribe, whisper in his ear about the importance of trees and how all living things depend on one another . . . and it works. Cherry’s lovingly rendered colored pencil and watercolor drawings of all the wondrous and rare animals evoke the lush rain forests, as well as stunning world maps bordered by tree porcupines, emerald tree boas, and dozens more fascinating creatures.

The Great Kapok Tree, A Tale of the Amazon Rain Forest

This is a beautifully powerful story about the interconnectedness of all living things. At the beginning of the story, a young man begins to chop down a Kapok tree in the Amazon Rainforest. After exhausting himself in the rainforest heat, he lays down to take a nap midway through his work. As he naps, the many creatures that live in and depend on the Kapok tree visit him and whisper pleas to save their treasured home. When the man awakes from his slumber to resume work cutting down the tree, he has a change of heart.
