Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
Readers learn all about bats—where they live, what they eat, how they drink, and how they hunt at night—in this informative book that provides an overview of behaviors common among all bats instead of focusing on just one of the more than 1,100 different species of bats found around the world. Bright colorful pages filled with photographs of bats in action work with the text to reinforce the information about bats' lifestyle and habits. Featuring a page of fun facts and a detailed diagram labeling the different parts of a bat's body, this book is a must read for young kids interested in bats. Like all books in the "Animal Close-Ups" series in the "Lightning Bolt Books" collection, this book contains a glossary of bat related terms, a quick reference index, and a guide to print and online sources of further reading about bats. This sturdy book would make a great addition to elementary school libraries or other collections serving young children with a nature or animal focused curriculum. Reviewer: Jamie Hain
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2–These easy readers introduce distinctly different animals (some, such as pigeons, prairie dogs, and bats, are united in their “perceived pest” status) in a fun way. Fresh photography, a creative use of graphics, and a collagelike layout make them eye-catching. Interactive text (“Why are all these bats upside down?”) and a “Fun Facts” page in Bats, Pigeons, and Snails will engage readers. Each book ends with a labeled diagram of the animal, a range map, and a further-reading list that includes print and online resources in a single list, a nice way of validating both types of materials.
