I've plucked a number of rainforesty books from our local library including:

Search "The Great Kapok Tree" itself and you'll find tons of go-along lesson plans, like the one at Homeschool Share.
We also picked up a fun video about rainforest animals, plus I have some cartoon movie back-ups in case I get desperate:

My plan for today is to go grocery shopping in the rainforest (insert dramatic music).
Okay, not really. But we are going to take a list of foods (mostly fruits) naturally found in the rainforests and make a Rainforest Fruit Salad when we get back home. I constructed my list with the help of this site.
I've also read other blogs where daring parents replicate the rainforest biome using moist foods like buttered bread, celery, along with ground-up Oreos. Yum indeed.
We'll swing from that vine when we get to it, I suppose.
