Little Bat in Night School
Little Bat is too excited to sleep. Won’t night ever come? He has his backpack, water bottle, crayons, and more ready. He is ready. But Mom says he needs to rest until dark. Finally, they go. The school is bigger than he thought it would be, and there are lots of nocturnal animals: raccoons, owlets, a ferret, and, at last, he spots a couple of bats. He asks if they want to play, but they are already playing––with each other. Little Bat flies to his cubby and finds a possum hanging there. Little Bat hangs with him, and they become friends. Suddenly school is better. They join the others and do lots of school things: counting, show and tell, nap time, art, and munch time. When the night is over, Little Bat can’t wait for the next night.
Brian Lies is both author and illustrator of this sweet book. The story is compelling and will keep little listeners engaged, but the art is downright stunning and will keep little eyes searching for all the wonderful details on every page. This is one of the best starting school books ever. Kiddies will ask for it over and over.
