Recommended to Milo by: Mama
Mama loves this book a lot more than I do. She has forced it on me enough to now realize that if I want to read it I will. I don't pick it up much. But, Mama still loves to look at the Squirrel Bat. It is the largest known bat with a wing span of six feet. She just doesn't understand why that does not impress me.

An informational nonfiction book on bats. Large print and vivid photos hooks the reader in, as I was reading this book aloud to my first graders they were excited to learn about the facts and were even more interested in looking at the detail in the photos. Good book to go along with your science lesson or even around Halloween.

This one was good with lots of words I knew.
Aunt Kathy told me about bats that fly down into your hair and I think they should have a picture of that in here.
All the bats in this book have really sharp teeth and big wings.
The best animal books are 590.

2008 September 22Really good pictures, but the stupid book doesn't label them, so must of the time you don't know which bat it is you're looking at.

One of them, by the bye, has a nose just like Hogsqueal from Spiderwick.

This book shows the creepy looking bats, especially when the pictures are blown up and close up to where you see the bats.
