One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree by Daniel Bernstrom; illustrated by Brendan Wenzel. 2016. Digital illlustrations

Brief Summary: A little boy gets eaten by a yellow boa constrictor. The lad tricks the snake into eating more and more animals it finds under the eucalyptus tree until it burps and throws them all out of its tummy.

Comments: A cumulative tale. Nice rhythm and rhyming. I plan to compare it to the There Was an Old Lady series. Reading the word eucalyptus over and over is easier than saying it aloud. [yoo-kuhlip-tuh s].  I will have the children practice it after I read the title, but before I get to that, I will need to show them what the plant looks like as it is not native to Ohio.
