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

The many different animals that live in a great kapok tree in the Brazilian rainforest try to convince a man with an ax of the importance of not cutting down their home. Although this picture book is meant for a younger audience, it is useful to demonstrate that in the same way one tree in a forest is important to many other animals, one species in the ocean—like squid—are important to many other species in the ocean.
