This year we are focusing on bats and you can’t beat the below list on books about bats! They are incredibly amazing creatures and and be so tiny they fit in the palm of your hand and SO HUGE that you might actually be frightened of them! These night creatures are super fun to learn about and make a great “non” Halloween theme for the month of October if you teach in a school that doesn’t celebrate Halloween!
Below I’ve put together more than 25 books about bats that do everything from teach kids science lessons on this unique animal or just have bats in the theme! Just click on the image OR on the title written below to read more about each one! If you work with younger kids you may want to use this grey bat puppet or brown bat puppet to team up with you during story time!
