Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Halfmann reveals factual details about bats through an eventful story line. When Baby Bat's mother goes out to search for food, her baby falls into the messy nest of Pluribus Packrat. With the aid of a flashlight, friendly Pluribus takes the little creature on a tour of the cave, and readers learn not only about cave bats but also about the cave environment, why cave bats are important to it, and how these bats impact other cave-dwelling creatures. Halfmann adeptly defines terms such as "stalactites," "stalagmites," and "guano" in context, and the factual material is nicely integrated into the story. At the end of their explorations, Pluribus returns Baby Bat to his nursery. Bersani's mixed-media artwork, predominately spreads, appears to be a combination of paint and pencil. Shades of brown, gray, and black create a realistic-looking interior. Light emitted from Pluribus's flashlight draws attention to the other critters, while emotions can be seen in the facial expressions of Pluribus and Baby Bat. Four pages of additional information for classroom lessons and activities are included. Children fascinated by bats and who grasp information better through a plotline rather than through straightforward nonfiction should find this an intriguing read. Readers eager for more information can turn to J. Angelique Johnson's Bats (Capstone, 2011) and Cindy Rodriguez's Bats (Rourke, 2010); both of these titles are organized topically and feature color photos.—Lynn Vanca, Freelance Librarian, Akron, OH
Kirkus Reviews
A young bat explores cave ecology, squired by a pack rat with a flashlight. In the gossamer-thin fictional overlay, little Baby Bat meets a pack rat named Pluribus who, with an illogical "We can use my flashlight and follow the scent trails I've made from room to room," sets off on a tour. After encounters with a bird, a snake and the teeming residents of the guano-covered floor ("Wow, I had no idea that so many animals depend on us for food!") Baby Bat crawls back up to the ceiling with a new appreciation for his--or at least his poop's--importance. Pale, realistically drawn but indistinct insects and other cave creatures swarm across Bersani's low-contrast colored-pencil illustrations, and the info-load is further expanded by several closing pages of additional information and discussion questions ("Are bats good or bad?"). An e-book version with extra features is also available. Bat lovers (or haters, for that matter) aren't going to learn anything here that isn't offered more clearly and with less anthropomorphism elsewhere. (Informational picture book. 6-8)
