Second graders from P.S. 111 will plant flowers outside the health center in sidewalk tree planters, as well as in small pots to take home. Inside, they will color and have story time with Assemblymember Rosenthal, who will be reading The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry, which tells the story of a man who rethinks his decision to cut down a tree in the Amazon rain forest after learning how important the tree is for the survival of the rain forest and its animals.

Each child will receive a copy of The Great Kapok Tree to take home.
