Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-3. From the Hello Reader Science series comes this introduction to bats. The authors compare bats with other mammals and discuss their lives in colonies and the many varieties. Physical characteristics and behaviors such as echolocation and migration are also noted. In an effort to protect these remarkable animals and their habitats, the Bergers dispel a few myths and encourage children to do the same. The clearly written text is illustrated with many full-color photos of bats in the wild. Although shorter than many books available on the subject, this will suit young readers looking for a basic introduction. --Carolyn Phelan
