Fun with a hungry 🐍 - Yes, really.

Summary:

Hidden in the leaves of the eucalyptus tree lived a big yellow snake. No one could see him. He was very sneaky and in no time flat swallowed a series of creatures - including a smart little boy with a whirly-twirly toy. Just how hungry is this snake? 


Parent Perspective:
Predictable but still adorable, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. There is SO much to explore on the pages beyond a snake swallowing any number of creatures. I personally love the mouse reading under the tree. 


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Kids will race from one page to the next wanting to know what the snake is going to eat. Slow them down and have fun enjoying all of the other things on the page.

Content Awareness Factors:

None. Just know that the boy and critters escape from the belly of the snake in the "usual" way.


Type of Book:
This rhyming picture book is a story in creative problem-solving and fun words.
Educational Themes:

Did you spot the alligator on the last page? WIll he make the same "mistake" that the snake did? Ask your reader what they think!
