Hilarious illustrated non-fiction about bats perfect for beginning readers. Conversational text and silly illustrations will have you up all night reading about the only flying mammal on Earth!
Fast bat facts:
* Distinctive trait: The only flying mammal
* Diet: Insects, fruit and even animal blood
* Special talent: Sleeping upside down
The Bat covers habitat (bats live everywhere except Antarctica!), species (there are over 1,200 kinds of bats), echolocation, hibernation (bats hibernate just like bears!), conservation (don't disturb a sleeping bat!) and much more. Although silly and off-the-wall, The Bat contains factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.
