I have to be honest, I have no clue how to review this book. Obviously I am not a four-year-old and I never will have kids so I could not say how this book would work with a kid but I am sure I would've loved it had I came across it at the targeted reading age, but the truth is that I am interested in bats and typed the word "bats" into my local library and all I could locate was a batch of books intended for kids, so I did what anyone interested in these mammals would do, take every single one ...more
I'm using this book, and other beginner's books like it, as an incentive for my son. We're trying to finish potty-training him and I figure giving him these books is two-fold.

This is a great beginner's information book. It gives basic facts about bats that are easy for beginning readers. They can learn about echolocation, where bats live, what they eat, and how they help people.

Beginning readers seem to soak up information about just about anything! Put this into a book that is at their reading level and you can't go wrong.

This is a great informational book. I really enjoyed the facts this book gives. It is a great read aloud book to identify the different parts and habitats of bats. The children love responding to a "gross" part of the book.

Interesting basic facts. Scholastic Level 1 Reader. Photos. I did not think that bats migrated. (Did I get that from Bruchac's THE GREAT BALL GAME?) Simple explanations that would be easy to share with young students.

I enjoyed reading this to my son. The pictures are really cool and it has just enough information to keep it fun, but not overwhelming for young readers

Nieces book she shared again. Great book for young reader. Very educational. Great illustrations also. Not necessarily a bedtime story.
