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

This is a wonderful book the my CT just finished reading to her class of first graders, although I think it could be read to anyone from K-4th. This book is basically abput a man who is going to cut down a tree in the rain forest when he falls asleep at the foot of the huge tree. While he is sleeping, many animals come from  the tree and ask him not to cut down the tree. This book his wonderful because it advocates for the preservation of the rain forest. Also, it would be easy to do a sequencing activity with this book.
