I wouldn't be so sure; C++ and Java both have standard libraries with
dictionaries (and thus are mostly lacking a literal syntax). But it's
easy to find books talking about the simple stuff.
I'd suggest looking at the books used in MIT's intro classes:
6.000 (Intro to CS and programming):
Zelle, John M. Python Programming: An Introduction to Computer Science
Budd, Timothy. Exploring Python
Shaw, Zed A. Learn Python the Hard Way [online]
Swaroop, CH. A Byte of Python
6.006 (Intro to algorithms):
Miller and Ranum. Problem Solving with Algorithms and Data Structures
[CLRS isn't Python]
and see if they have anything to offer. (I didn't actually look.)
