Overview

Bats Around the Clock by Kathi Appelt, Melissa Sweet

It's fun to tell time as you dance around the clock!

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to boogie! It's American Batstand - a twelve-hour rock and roll extravaganza with Click Dark as your host. Decked in go-go boots and bobby sox, the buoyant bats bebop their way around the clock. And there's a special guest appearance at the end!

With their swinging text and groovy illustrations, the creators of Bat Jamboree and Bats on Parade don't miss a beat when it comes to the basics. Telling time has never been so much fun!

This is a very funny book. The background does have to explained to your children because it is a take off of Dick Clark and the American Bandstand, the clothes style of the 50's and 60's, the dances of that generation, Elivs songs and Chubby checker. My kids enjoyed the story and even tried to do the dance steps. Overall, the story is funny and delightful.
