I’ve seen this book on display through spring and summer months and have always been curious of it. And yet, I’ve always drifted past the book thinking I should pick it up and read it but always having an excuse. Either I was too busy or I was reading something else.
Finally I grabbed the book, enjoying one of our first warm spring days I rejoiced to have something that reminded me of summer. And my goodness what an adorable children’s picture book!!
With a cute rhyming storyline the tale is told of bats going to out for a ‘night’ at the beach. They had moon tan lotion! How adorable is that? But really the story line was second hand to the illustrations which I truly enjoyed. All of the little details of the different bats from babies to older bats.
There was a baby bat with swimmies on for the water- I’m sorry, but that is quite possibly the cutest thing ever.
The story is very reflective of what people usually do when they go to a beach with many of the same activities but, of course, this is a group of bats. So it’s twisted a little bit and made into a more bat-like time filled with lots of bugs to eat. I think it’s a perfect children’s book for little kids who like bats and bugs or maybe just the beach. There are other bat books… that I haven’t read yet. But after enjoying this one I feel that I won’t take so long going off to read the others that I always see on display!
