Title: Bats At The Beach
Author/Illustrator: Brian Lies
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Company
Ages: 4 to 8
"Sun slips down and all is still,
and soon we can't tell sky from hill.
Now from barn and cave and rafter,
bats pour out with shrieks of laughter."
Why you should read it: I love the idea of playing at the beach but being allergic to the sun, I can appreciate the bats wanting to wait until the sun goes down. Mr. Lies' wonderful illustrations enhance the lyrical words of this rhyming picture book. Readers young and old will eagerly turn the pages of this whimsical book to see what these little bats will do next!
