Baby Bats Don't Hatch From Eggs by Darlene Hartford

Sebastian was a newborn bat pup living in the attic of the old yellow schoolhouse. More than anything, Sebastian wanted to fly like the bigger bats, but he was too young. Typically, female bats roosting in the schoolhouse kept their pups safely inside when flying off to feed at night. But, one night, knowing how anxious Sebastian was to fly, Mother Bat decided to take Sebastian with her. Mother Bat tucked Sebastian safely under wing and flew out of the attic roost. That was not a good idea! It was the start of a scary adventure , where, before too long, Sebastian was alone and frightened.
Sebastian heard strange cracking noises all around and saw two black eyes glaring at him! What were those weird sounds and who was glaring at him? Where was he? But more important, where was Mother Bat?...

About the Author

Darlene Hartford lives in Peachland, British Columbia with her husband. She enjoys an Okanagan lifestyle residing on Lake Okanagan, surrounded by nature. The series, Bats in the Schoolhouse Attic, includes her first published manuscripts, fulfilling a lifelong dream of writing children's books.
The lakefront community of Peachland has 5,000 residents, as well as a colony of 2,000 bats, that live in a historic schoolhouse. The school was closed and boarded shut for ten years, but with the decision to preserve the building, the bat colony was also saved. A community educational program was established to promote public awareness of the value of bats, and to discredit myths surrounding the protected species. Darlene Hartford is the Peachland Chamber of Commerce Director of Peachland Bats Educational and Conservation Program.
The colony of winged mammals inspired Darlene Hartford to write a series of whimsical stories with endearing bat characters. The Peachland Historic Primary School is home to a maternity colony, consisting of mainly female bats, roosting together, producing offspring. The stories are adventures of mother bats with their pups, and provide a harmonious balance between the imaginative and the educational. Each book provides Bat Facts in reference to the storyline.
Darlene Hartford dedicated the series, Bats in the Schoolhouse Attic, to her seven grandchildren....
