Hello, Bumblebee Bat written by Darrin Lunde and illustrated by Patricia J. Wynne. This non-fiction picture book that received the 2008 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book award. It is a set of informational questions for the bumblebee bat pictured in the book. The bat answers each question accordingly and at the end of the book, is a brief history about the bat and additional information.The questions relate to size, habitat, food, and senses of the bumblebee bat and the pictures on the following page illustrate the bat in relation to the interview. The illustrations are very detailed and show a bat that is very expressive for example, they show his fear of owls and his overall contentment with sharing his facts with the reader. Illustrations reinforce the text well, and demonstrate the setting of the caves where the bats dwell, as well as the night time landscape. This book would be ideal for preschool children up to age 6 or 7, because of the simple, short sentences and appealing pictures.
