PCA’s Preschool (PCAP) is a wonderful place for children to learn and grow, but for a few weeks every year it’s downright wild! The children learn about the rainforest and all of the amazing creatures that call it home. At the end of the unit, all of the parents are invited as Miss Kelly reads The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry and all of the students act out the different characters. It’s hard to know who has the most fun, the parents, the students, or the teachers!

The Kapok Tree is a story about a man who goes into the rainforest to chop down a kapok tree. He eventually gets tired as he works to cut down the big tree and takes a nap. While he sleeps the animals that depend on the kapok tree visit him.
