Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This volume is a book that I am happy to have for my child's home library and that I recommend for libraries serving children in lower elementary school grades. it could be integrated easily into classroom discussions about the animals themselves, ecology and conservation.—Science Books & Films
Children's Literature
"The Kids Can Press Wildlife" series uses vivid and detailed illustrations accompanied by easy to read text to help reinforce learning. Many myths exist about bats and one is that they are blind. They are the only mammals that have the ability to fly and they make up about one quarter of all mammal species. There are over 950 species of bats and they can be found almost everywhere in the world except high mountaintops and Antarctica. Most bats hunt at night and sleep during the day in a roost. They have special veins that keep their blood circulating through their bodies while they hang. These are just a few of the facts about bats readers will learn. Also included are how bats move, how they grow and learn, and how they are born. Words to know and an index are also included to make learning fun and simple. An eye-catching addition to any classroom. 2003, Kids Can Press, Ages 5 to 10.
