As the bats settle in for story time, they discover that the real fun in the library are the stories.

Little Kid Reaction

We've been reading Bats at the Library and Bats at the Beach for several nights. Our daughter likes reading them in tandem. She enjoys exploring the illustrations as much as sharing the reading.

Parent Reaction

Brian Lies has created a wonderful series with these books. The bats are playful and engaging characters, even though no one bat is singled out. The rhyming makes for fast reading and adds to its value as an easy reader. Although the stories have plenty of action, the dark color scheme keep it a soothing, fun bedtime story.

Type of Book:
This rhyming book explores the library after dark.
Educational Themes:

This is a story meant to be enjoyed as recreational reading. With a little bit of stretching, you could use it as a primer on library etiquette. Children who read lots of stories will enjoy exploring the illustrations to find some of their favorite characters and books transformed in a bat's imagination.

Purchase Recommendation:
Buy! These are fun books that you'll enjoy reading over and over again. Because the illustrations connect kids to other, familiar stories you'll want to have a copy around so you know what other books to look for.
