Overview


Littlebat, who lives in the attic of the public library, loves to poke his head through a hole in the floor and listen to the librarian read stories to the children. One day he gets so excited by a picture in a book that he loses his grip and plummets into the room below. The children scream and the librarian shoos him away. Littlebat's mother says he must wait for "changes" before going so close to a book again. So Littlebat waits. The seasons slowly change, from spring to summer to fall. At last the nights are longer and cooler and the leaves have turned red and gold. Pumpkins appear. It's time!

Littlebat loves to listen to the stories being told below the attic where he sleeps, but he has to wait until just the right time to get close enough to hear them better.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-A charming story of a young bat that loves to listen to stories at the library. Littlebat lives in the building's attic with his mother and a host of other bats. He falls asleep in a corner over a ceiling vent, and awakens hours later to the sounds of storytime. He loves this ritual, and is fascinated with what he hears, but he's frustrated because he can't see the pictures. He is contented to just listen until the day he sees a giant moth on the page the librarian is reading and swoops down to eat this delectable morsel. Of course, this action frightens all the preschoolers gathered there. His mother reassures Littlebat that a day will come when he, too, will be able to see the books being read without scaring anyone away. Seasons pass, and the little creature waits patiently until that moment comes. This story has enough suspense to keep readers anticipating what day the animal will finally get to see the pictures and enough tension to keep readers firmly on his side. Kendall's illustrations accurately depict the bats and the cheerful library they inhabit. This story does much to dispel the myths that surround bats. Any librarian would be glad to have these creatures in their library (at least on paper).-Susan Marie Pitard, formerly at Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
