Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It was a dark and stormy night and Batbaby, out on his first solo flight, gets tossed into a hollow in a tree. What a surprise. He landed in the home of a squirrel that Batbaby woke from a sound sleep. Awake and concerned, the squirrel checks with his woodpecker neighbor and learns a few bat facts. Secure that he is in no danger, the squirrel tries to get Batbaby to go to sleep. It is an amusing story with kid friendly illustrations and an ending that will bring a chuckle. Part of the "Little Dipper" series.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2--On his first independent flight, Batbaby is blown into Squirrel's treetop nest by a storm. Squirrel does his best to care for his unexpected guest, although Batbaby's nocturnal habits conflict with Squirrel's desire to sleep. Eventually the young bat goes to sleep and in the morning he finds his way back to his parents--who then have to get him back on a nocturnal schedule. Each full-page, full-color illustration is opposite a page of text in this charming, miniature picture book. Both parents and children will identify with Squirrel's difficulty in getting the wakeful Batbaby to settle down. Information on the habits of bats is well integrated into the story. A delight.--Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY
