Questions about Panda3d and Python

Hi all,

I’m a professional developer for 12 years. I developed games as a kid but have a renewed interest in developing children’s educational games.

What brings me here is that I’m interested in finding the ideal platform that will reduce my development time to a point where one developer can put out a game in 6 months or so of side work.

I saw the book named “Game Programming With Python (Game Development Series).” Does anybody know if this book uses a particular framework, or if this book will be a useful companion to Panda3d? Is there any other books that I should check out that will help me evaluate the feasibility of game development in Python? I’m new to Python as well. I would learn it if it proved to be a good platform for what I need.
