Bats at the Library
Last night as I was reading, I happened to look out the window and saw several bats swooping for mosquitoes in the backyard. It reminded me of a wonderful new book that I shared with the kindergarteners at their annual visit to the library this year. "Bats in the Library", by Brian Lies is a rhyming celebration of a night bats fly through an open window at the library and share in all the delights to be found there, from reading in a cozy spot, to talking about books, exploring, and even storytime. In the illustrations, check out to the homage to classic children's literature. Fun.
