Book Weekend – Brazil in stories

One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree by Daniel Bernstrom.OneDayThis new spin on a traditional cumulative story starts with a boy playing in the jungle, getting eaten by a python! From inside the belly, the boy encourages the snake to keep eating, more animals and more! From a bird, to an ape, to a sloth, to a bee’s hive, the python couldn’t possible eat any more!  The explosive ending leaves everyone just fine, while the colorful googly-eyed cartoon style keeps the creatures playful rather than scary.
