Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan AtteburyBats, bats, and more bats fill the pages of this book and others found in the "Bats Set II" series. Sometimes bats are considered less than good looking. But the clear, close-up photos bring them to life as interesting and fine looking creatures. The format offers two- page spreads with the text on the left side and photos or illustrations on the entire right side. Several pictures are labeled for learning easy terms. Text content defines this bat, tells where it is found, adds in the sizes, shapes, and senses, as well as the bat's defenses, food, and babies. In addition, readers are given an excellent explanation of echolocation or the ability some bats possess to send out sound waves that bounce off objects. Every corner of this title is covered in a concise and detailed manner. Important terms are bold faced and defined in the glossary. The content is complete, informative, and interesting. Readers who note that this book is from "Bats Set II" will readily ask for the "Bats Set I." This is an excellent addition to science materials in the classroom and even learning about different parts of the world.
