It won't be long before the baby bat will be able to stay alone in the attic while his mother hunts through the night. The attic will come alive with his "sqeaking cries" while he awaits her return. Within the week he will have company as the "other bats have babies." In time they will become strong enough to fly and go out into the night to learn to hunt. What will happen to them when they squeeze through the attic air vent and venture into the night skies? How will they catch insects?
This is an excellent book about the life of the big brown bat. Told in picture book format, this tale about the the birth, growth, and life of one pup will be of high interest to the young reader. The confident reader will be able to tackle this one easily, while others can enjoy it with assistance with more difficult word words as antennae or hibernate. The beautiful, unframed illustrations depict, in detail, such things such as how the young bat senses the presence of a moth when he "shrieks into the darkness." A springlike whorl from the bat's mouth to a moth depicting the echo effect makes unseen concepts easily understood. In the back of the book is a concise, well written note on "Bat Basics."
