      Verdi is a beautiful baby python who experiences many of life s lessons on the path to growing up, just as children do on the way to adulthood The colorful illustrations matched the story perfectly This children s book would make a great bedtime read There is also a nice section in the back of the book that discusses snake facts.

      I read this book today to the Kindergarten class I am observing because it tied into the discussion they ve been having for a while about the animals of the rainforest My cooperating teacher thought this was an especially good time to read this book because it s about a python and they are studying the various types of snakes right now Overall I thought the story was wonderful The illustrations were beautiful and the kids were very engaged The whole concept of a snake s point of view on molting [...]

      I read this for my Children s Lit class, as I plan on becoming a librarian The class isn t required but I see it coming in handy someday For all the really frustrating, overly watered down and unimaginative children s books you find, there s always one or two jewels this was one of those jewels Janell Cannon, the acclaimed author of Stellaluna, puts a new spin on the coming of age story by telling it through the eyes of Verdi the snake When the mother snake sent her hatchlings out into the jungl [...]

      Verdi is a book that grown ups and kids alike will love and relate to Verdi is a young, yellow snake He can move fast and do all sorts of neat tricks that the old and slow green snakes don t seem to be able to do All they want to do is sit around and enjoy nature and talk, which is a young snakes s worst nightmare Little Verdi s biggest fear in life is turning into a big green snake and becoming boring When he sees the first signs of green in his skin he panics and does all sorts of crazy, darin [...]

      Verdi, a young yellow snake with an adventurous attitude is going to do his best to not turn into an old green snake The old green snakes are boring, lazy and rude, in Verdi s opinion Vowing that he will stay young forever he daringly explores the jungle Verdi notices despite his efforts to stay yellow he starts to turn green, oh no With one last daring attempt to stay yellow Verdi hurts himself and is forced to lay still and listen to the old green snakes, while doing so he turns green Thinking [...]

    8. Amy V. Bland on said:

      My daughter loved this It was her favorite book of her first grade year.

    9. Stephen Schmitz on said:

      I think Verdi was an excellent book The illustrations were wonderful and the stories message is just as great This is a coming of age tale in which a snake is not looking forward to growing up He eventually realizes that his perspective will also change with age I enjoyed that this book brought us on a journey with the main character We understand the feelings and motivations of the character, and our views change alongside the character as the story progresses The message is quite universal as [...]

      Verdi is a young python, he is yellow with stripes and has no desire to grow up and grow green He wants nothing but to jump, climb and keep moving around the jungle, never growing old, growing lazy and green He wanted to keep his yellow skin and his stripes, but slowly the green started All the while the older green snakes and other animals watched They knew the feelings that Verdi was having, they remembered, so they tried to tell him stories to sooth him Then, after he really had turned to gre [...]

      Verdi is a hyper and happy yellow snake with dark stripes He loves to climb around and do crazy things all of the time Verdi always asks the older green snakes to do fun stuff but sadly they always say no He has a fear of growing up and turning green because all the green snakes are rude, lazy and sassy One day Verdi finds a light green stripe along his body and tries just about anything to get rid of it He washed himself and even covered himself in mud, but nothing stopped the green, after gett [...]

      1 I hate snakes 2 I loved the illustrations Illustrations get me every time with out fail 3 Cute story We are having a Snake program here at the Library, maybe we should make a special display

    13. Kaethe on said:

      This beautifully illustrated book is just the thing for anyone you know who is finally settling down Kids will enjoy the whimsical snake and will relate to the story on a basic level, but adults will find a little extra meaning.

      Verdi is a baby green python He loves being yellow with black squiggles down his back He loves being a dare devil He never wants to grow up and be like those boring old greens coiled up unmoving in the trees all day.One day he sheds his skin He is turning green.Verdi wants to be like Peter Pan and never grow up He doesn t want to be an adult Adults are so boring He is growing up and plans to fight every inch of the way.This is an older chapter book or a read aloud Verdi s adventures make me lau [...]

    15. Michelle (Sherbet Lemon) on said:

      This is my third Janell Cannon book and I ve gotta say, that I really need to read from her This for me is about on par with Stellaluna for how much I loved it The illustrations were also so masterful and fun, and that emotion on a snake s face At it s core this is about growing up, how we might resist it but it comes anyways, but that doesn t mean that we have to stop being ourselves as we were Yes, we grow up but we can still retain a sense of fun in our hearts 3

    16. Delali on said:

      Janell Cannon s books are so beautiful illustrated that they take my breath away My daughter has loved each of her books that we ve read, and this one was no different She especially laughed when Verdi launches himself into the air in an effort to entertain himself The book has a great little message too, for adults and children alike.

    17. Casey on said:

      I remember reading this as a kid and loving it it s a great story about growing up and learning that it s okay to change, cuz that s what happens in life I also loved the bright colors that the picture book contained and now that I have a nephew I think I will get this book for him when he s a little older.

    18. Rachel Hancock on said:

      Verdi is a wonderfully illustrated children s book by Janell Cannon It is about a snake who doesn t want to end up like the old, lazy, green snakes The book follows him throughout his transition from young, yellow snake to old green snake.

    19. Miss Sarah on said:

      A very interesting picture book about a snake that is yellow and doesn t want ot grow up to be green He wants adventure and not the sedentary life he sees older snakes have Can he stop himself from becoming green and old Cute but length makes it one on one or preschool.

    20. Tanya on said:

      I really love this story, but it was never a favorite of my kids SoI guess the hardback copy I purchased was mostly for me.Honestly, now that my little ones are teens and my own skin is getting old, I can really relate to lithe Verdi not wanting to change color and get fat

    21. Anna on said:

      Pretty good Not a classic like Stellaluna , but the pictures are gorgeous.

    22. Lindsay Niebuhr on said:

      This story is about an adorable snake who learns what it means to be himself This book deserves five out of five stars for teaching readers what it means to be unique.

    23. Eden on said:

      Verdi is a snake that desperately wants to stay yellow, because he thinks if he turns green when he grows up that he ll be lazy and boring.

      Summary Verdi is a proud python, flourishing in the flower of his youth He loves to swiftly slither around the forest, brandishing his bright yellow skin, and can t fathom why anyone would want to be sleepy and green like the adult snakes he knows Verdi insists, as so many youngsters do, I will never be lazy, boring or green Despite his resolve to stay young, one day he notices a patch of green spreading down the length of his body Verdi does everything he can think of to erase this first sign o [...]

      Genre Modern FantasyRecommended Grade Level Primary Much like Stellaluna also written by Cannon, this book introduces a scary animal in a softer light The illustrations and colors used in them seem to pop right off the page.

      Title Verdi by Janell Cannon Published by Harcourt Brace Company,1997Summary A young yellow python does not want to grow slow and boring like the older green snakes he sees in the tropical jungle where he lives He does everything he can to keep himself from turning green, even attempting to leave mud on him until it ends up cracking off When he eventually turns green he blends in so others creatures don t notice him but when two young yellow pythons doubt his ability to have fun, he shows them t [...]

    29. Madison Jones on said:

      Cannon strikes a fragile balance between fact and fiction in her presentation of Verdi, a very small, bright yellow python who does not want to grow up into the adult snakes he knows green, boring, and rude He tries to race off, wash off, and cover up all signs of his own encroaching green, until an accident forces him to slow down He grows up big and green and slumberously silent as he drapes on a branch in the tropical sun When two very yellow, very small pythons chance upon him as he basks, t [...]
