Tonight is boring, just like every other night ... or is it? The window in the library has been left open, so it must be Bat Night at the Library. All of the bats are here, some study cookbooks, some hang from the lamps, some find games to play! As the bats settle in for story time, they discover that the real fun in the library are the stories.
Adorable bats and their silly antics will delight children and parents alike.
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.
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.
This rhyming book explores the library after dark.
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.
