If the vibrant colors of this book don't bring kids in, the rhythmic tale of a colony of bats enjoying a night in the library will. This is the second of Brian Lies books starting with Bats at the Beach and now end with Bats at the Ballgame. The first thing I like is the idea of using bats. It's not a common animal to use. But Lies puts a human spin on these dark animals, giving them traits common to people (the elder bats wear glasses and the mama bats carry their young in a baby bjorn).
My favorite part is by far reading time. Watching the scenes of the young bats being transformed into the stories: one dressed as Little Red Riding Hood, another reading Goodnight, Sun (I literally laughed out loud at that one). I enjoyed this tale and I'm sure the kids will as well.
