This book really impressed me. Not only is it a great book to learn from, but it's an EASY book to learn from. IT's not your typical boring educational book, no sirree. It's simple words are easy to read and talk about it with young children. Plus, it's about bats! My boys are completely into bats right now and loved reading this book over and over.

On each page of this book there is a section dedicated to a certain bat. So, on each page you not only learn how to help bats live and grow, you actually learn specific things about different types of bats. How cool is that? Plus, the book also talks about plants and animals that need bats, and how we can help bats thrive!

With realistic illustrations, simple fun facts, and overall fun theme, this book is sure to please a little bat lover! I highly recommend this book for schools, libraries, homeschooling libraries and even just your regular household libraries. I will definitely be looking for the other books in this series!
