Children's LiteratureExcellent photographs of a variety of bats accompany this nonfiction text. Bats are the only mammals that fly. They usually eat insects that they find using echolocation, which is clearly explained and defined. Some bats migrate while others hibernate. At the end of this early reader, kids will appreciate more about this much-maligned animal that provides such a valuable service to keeping the insect population under control and also, in some cases, pollinates plants. Even without an index the facts can be gleaned from this interesting book. A "Scholastic Science Reader" rated Level 1.
