Happy Bat Appreciation Day!
Let’s take a minute to recognize the under appreciated and often detested flying mammal, the bat. Feelings about bats usually stem from ignorance of their beauty, usefulness, and environmental benefits. Thank goodness for wonderful picture books which educate and appreciate bats. Here are just three of my favorites.
Stellaluna by Janell Cannon (1993)
Enjoy this reading by actress, Pamela Reed. Love her soft and unique voice throughout the story!
Bats by Gail Gibbons (1999)
The Bat Scientists by Mary Kay Carson (2010)
