  • A classic.

  • Very cute book. We love it.

  • "The Bat in the Boot" is a beautifully told and well-illustrated story about a young girl who finds a baby bat in her father's boot, and together with her family (mom, dad, and brother) try to sustain the baby bat's life. They feed it milk from a dropper, keep it safe and snug, and when mother bat comes looking for her baby at night, the family hide in the background, waiting to see what will happen. This is a great story as it not only focuses on the baby bat's rescue, but more importantly, it shows how a family works together to help the helpless baby bat. I also liked that bats are portrayed in a positive light here, with the cute baby bat tugging at reader's heartstrings. A great picture book and perfect for reading aloud.

  • I originally bought this book for a presentation in one of my college classes and ended up falling in love with it.
