K - 2nd Grade 

Rhythmic text and a boy who outsmarts a snake are two excellent reasons to read this humorous book aloud.  If that is not enought to entice young readers and adults, the comedic growing reptilian stomach in the tradition of "There Was an Old Woman who Swallowed a Fly" will lead children to shout out predictions as to how the boy might escape the belly of the snake. For added fun have the kids repeat the refrain "One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree" after you, a little bit louder each time.
