Our family has been reading about bats recently and enjoying the many fascinating facets of this creature.
What to learn about bats too? Here is a list of the picture books we enjoyed from our library. Some of these repeated information, but each one was helpful.
Shadows of the Night, The Hidden World of the Little Brown Bat - Barbara Bush
One of my favorites, this book describes details of the brown bat, one of the most common bats in North America. Well illustrated.
Bat Loves the Night - Nicola Davies
A simple story of the pipistrelle bat, one of the most common bats in the world. Superb illustrations combine perfectly with the poetic prose.
Bats: Biggest! Littlest! - Sandra Markle
Journey around the world to visit various types of bats. The photography makes this book a winner. A map at the back of the book shows where various bats were photographed.
Zipping, Zapping, Zooming Bats - Ann Earle
A readable informative book on the wonders of bats.
Bat in the Dining Room - Crescent Dragonwagon
(Whew, how would you like that name?) A just for fun book about the chaos when a bat appears in the restaurant.
Amazing Bats - Seymour Simon
Bats - Elizabeth Carney
Two more bat books containing great photos.
Since we've learned how helpful bats are, we'd like to attract some more to our home. Have any of you built a bat house? Do you have information or a links to directions?
