I like and enjoy reading this story because it teaches acceptance, shows motherhood, and real friendship. It has a marvelous sense of humor and at the same time teaches about bats facts.
Stellaluna is the baby bat that survives the tragic fall when her mother was attack by an owl. She learned to live as a bird until she is reunited again with her mother bat. Nevertheless, she did not forget the little birds she grow up with. One of the best stories that teach acceptance to children. The mother bird had no trouble taking care of Stellaluna even though she look quite different.
The illustrations are look fantastic and they are made in Prismacolor pencils and Liquitex acrylics.
This picture book is a good example for building community among readers.
