A little bit batty!
We've gone a bit batty over here. Bats make a perfect topic for young ones and Halloween. Let's face it bats can be scary, they are at least to me, and who doesn't enjoy a bit of a good scare on Halloween. We stock up on bat books and also learn all about bats so they don't seem so scary anymore. Brian Lies series of Batty stories make great reads during the Halloween holiday season. Bats at the Beach, Bats at the Library and Bats at the Ballgame complete this trio of stories. The illustrations are dark and a bit eerie because they all take place at night when bats are up. But the fuzzy bats are sweetly drawn and not frightful at all. The stories share all the fun these bats have during their nights out at the beach, library or ballgame. They truly captures endearing moments, highlights and activities of these popular outings only with bat families not ours.
