Exhausted from his labors, a man chopping down a great kapok tree in the Brazilian rain forest puts down his axe, and, as he sleeps, the animals who live in the tree plead with him not to destroy their world.

This inspired look at what the Kapok tree means to the creatures that live in it - and what rain forests mean to the world's ecology - was at the forefront of the ecological movement ten years ago and continues to resonate profoundly with children everywhere.
