In the Amazon rainforest, a man begins to chop down an enormous Kapok tree which is home to many animals. When he sits down to rest, he falls asleep at the base of the tree. One by one, the amazing animals of the rainforest whisper in the man’s ear telling him of the tree’s importance and why he should not cut it down.
