Product Details


“Veteran science writer Markle’s basic introduction maintains a fine balance between general observations and specific facts. She has chosen particularly well when it comes to the photos: bats in flight, at rest, seizing prey, and clearly displaying distinctive body parts (‘Compared to its body size, the Tube-Lipped Nectar Bat has the world’s longest tongue’). Along with identifying 14 kinds of bats and explaining how their sizes influence their behaviors, she discusses bat diets and senses, the differences between the way bats and birds use their wings to fly, how they care for their young, and other relevant topics. . .” —Booklist

“. . . The clear text is simple and readable, describing the hunting techniques of microbats and the fruit-finding talents of megabats, and even delves into some forms of bat housing. Enriched by superb color photos and complete wtih sites for further investigation, the whole presentation is interesting and useful as well as attractive. . . ” —School Library Journal
