The Yellow Cab

The Yellow Cab  By: Marcus Pfister

Jack is a yellow cab in New York City.  He works very hard and loves his job, but he is tired. One day he sees a sign for Brazil and decides he would love to go there.  He has a dream where he is flying in the beautiful rainforest. His dream becomes a nightmare when construction vehicles come to tear down the beautiful rainforest, but Jack is able to get the construction crews out.

This is a good twist on telling about conservation. Jack wants nothing more than to save the beautiful place that he visited and is successful.  At the end of the book there are facts about rainforests and how to help conserve.  Great book to read to any elementary classroom.

I borrowed this from the public libray
