Two men walk into the rainforest, one leaving the other to begin chopping down one of the great kapok trees. The man tires, sits down to rest, and soon falls asleep to be visited by denizens of the rainforest, whispering in his ear the reasons why he should spare the great tree.

Shared this story using the document camera so that we could really take advantage of the amazingly detailed, beautiful picture spreads.
