From anatomy and habitat to bat myths and rescue efforts, this photo-illustrated book covers all things batty.
Lots of photos and a couple bat jokes entertain kids while they learn about these nocturnal animals.
None, really. This is a level 2 book for readers who are just about reading independently.
My daughter's favorite parts were the bat jokes and the images of the baby bats. "They're so cute."
There were things about bats I knew and things I didn't, so it was educational for me to listen to my daughter read. I liked the closeup photos of the bats so that you could see them better, although I could do with fewer teeth!
This is a nonfiction easy reader for developing readers.
This is an excellent primer for introducing bats and mammals. You could use this to learn more about bats in other places. For example, there is a two-page spread about bats rescued in Queensland, Australia. That creates opportunities to learn about the rescue as well as add a geography lesson about continents.

Read by a nine-year-old girl.
Borrow. There is lots of fascinating information, and this is a must-have for the school or public library. It is not one you'd keep long-term in your personal library.
