This book is really in depth about bats and provides information about things like what they eat, how they help the environment, and where they are found. I think this book could be read by older primary students but younger primary students may have to have help or have it read to them. It has large print and lots of pictures but there are some lengthy paragraphs that I think could be intimidating to younger primary students but is a little too simple for intermediate ages. Overall I just think all informational texts could just be really helpful to students who only enjoy reading things they are interested in - so if a student I have loves bats this would be the perfect book to get them to start reading!

I like this book because it tells the reader everything about bats and I feel that most children view bats as cool/intriguing animals. It teaches children vocabulary specific to bats, their anatomy, habitat, niche, etc. Also, it includes the phonetic spelling of tier 3 words to help with pronunciation. This book could be used in a guided reading discussion or a research project. ( )

Summary: I was surprised by how much information this book has about bats from what they eat to how they sleep. the reader learns about their habitats, nocturnal nature, and their amazing sense of hearing and how they use it to fly at night.

Personal Reaction: I now like bats! I was intrigued by all the different kinds of bats and what set them apart. Learning bats use a type of sonar that bounces off objects to know what is around them is pretty awesome! Great photos but it is National Geographic!

Classroom extension: Ask the children if any of them were scared of bats but now understand then better and why? Ask the children to pick one species of bat to draw. Read this around Halloween to show they aren't just made up creatures but that some beliefs about them are made up. ( )
