The beautiful snake is a green tree python, and now that it has fed, it will simply hang from a branch and relax for the next two weeks. Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its second-grade audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume introduces young readers to the everyday life of a green tree python. What does the snake eat? How does it catch its prey? Where does it lay its eggs? And how do adults and young pythons stay safe from predators in the forest? Throughout the book, readers are encouraged to make scientific observations based on the book's images and answer questions about green tree pythons' lives and physical characteristics. This innovative approach to teaching about wild animals gives young scientists the chance not only to read and learn the facts, but also to develop their own powers of observation and critical thinking.
