    One thought on “Python”

    1. PYTHON, an engaging and gorgeous children’s picture book beautifully written by Christopher Cheng and illustrated by Mark Jackson, is captivating from beginning to end. It combines two tantalizing and ‘exotic” subjects: pythons and the Australian bush. Christopher Cheng’s sensory writing creates vibrant storytelling about an animal that most people fear and its place in the life cycle, including its reproduction. The story flows smoothly like a film unfolding seamlessly from frame to fra [...]

    2. This book discusses the natural habitat of the Python. It discusses the needs of the Python for survival and provides for a great science lesson. I would probably do a read aloud of this book, before taking my students outside and allowing them to explore their own habitat. I would allow them to explore their own needs for survival in addition to the other animals that they may be familiar with, such as, house hold pets, etc.

    3. Beautiful picture book that flawlessly weaves together prose, informational text and stunning illustrations. A worthwhile purchase for any elementary classroom library.

    4. This book is something that I think all parents and teachers love it gets a child's interest all while teaching them valuable information! In this mix of both story and information Cheng shows us the natural life of a Python in her daily adventures while giving us information (including scientific vocabulary) that doesn't overwhelm the reader. Snakes are not my favorite thing in the world, but this book was a refreshing way to learn more about the Python while not having the information sugar co [...]

    5. A day in the life of a blue and yellow diamond python on the prowl for prey in the Australian bush. Good illustrations but not enough information to leave readers more in the know about this creature.

    6. interesting look at the python, very accessible to young readers. 2 different fonts distinguish between a narrative non fiction day in the life and bonus facts, there is a note to this effect in the back matter.

    7. A story like account of the python with small sections of fact. Definitely not for the faint of heart when it discusses the pythons meal.
