Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this rhyming counting book, a crew of performing bats entertain a crowd. "There's a nervous energy in these pictures that will almost surely disarm the reader, right off the bat," said PW. Ages 4-up.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2?A witty combination of counting book and theatrical experience. Each year the Bat Jamboree, starring 55 adorable bats, draws a standing-room only audience of animals of all types, and each year the show is better than ever. Against the silver backdrop of a drive-in movie screen, one bat sings, two bats flap, three bats cha-cha-cha, etc., until the grand finale, the great bat pyramid. Readers will find themselves counting backward with no effort at all as 10 bats line up, 9 flutter, 8 fly, and on up the pyramid. Of course, the show isn't over until the bat lady sings! Children who have experienced or participated in any type of performance will especially appreciate the anticipation building up to the excitement of the finale. The playful, rhyming text and Sweet's characteristically charming watercolors will have kids cooking up their own backyard jamborees.?Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA

...and we're a childless family. We recommend you get this in hardcover, as it's a definate re-read (like, lots of times). We love the mix of vaudeville, bats, and the whimsical rhymes. If something "Wasn't quite as fun as 'The Corgiville Fair'" (see the book by Tasha Tudor), then it often was "As fun as 'The Bat Jamboree'"...only because the Bat Jamboree is only for several hours (vs. all day). We've bought several copies of BJ for diverse audiences. One copy we gave to an old vaudeville fan, and another to our governor's baby daughter (there were bats infesting the governors' mansion about the time the book came out). A third went to an employee of an old drive-in theatre. A joy for young and old. You'll be "batty" over it.

As a third grade teacher, I found this book useful on the 55th day of school. After reading the book, the children made a pyramid using manipulatives for the bats. We used 1" tiles. This demonstrates a growing pattern using +1 pattern to grow with. This is a nice lead-in to multiplication.

This book has a fun and exciting story line. Children will have fun reading about the 55 bats at the jamboree. The illustrations are colorful and eye-catching. Children can have fun counting, adding and subtracting the 55 bats at the Bat Jamboree. Watch out for the Bat Lady!

When I first saw this book, I was instantly drawn to it. I have a keen interest in bats, so I was thrilled to find a humorous book about the subject. I laughed out loud when I read the end of the book--something about "it ain't over til the bat lady sings!" That's great!!
