Summary

This fact-filled, colorful look at the amazing world of bats includes a call to action to protect these creatures and their habitats.
In simple yet informative language, A Place for Bats introduces young readers to the ways human action or inaction can affect bat populations and opens kids' minds to a wide range of environmental issues. Describing various examples, the text provides an intriguing look at bats, at the ecosystems that support their survival, and at the efforts of some people to save them. At the end of the book, the author offers readers a list of things they can do to help protect these special creatures in their own communities.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Beginning with A Place for Butterflies (2006), this picture-book series has introduced the worlds of birds, frogs, fish, and now bats. This volume features Bond's detailed, acrylic paintings illustrating different kinds of bats within their habitats. On each double-page spread, a self-contained text box offers information about the species pictured. Meanwhile, a separate, continuous band of text can be read straight through the book. Stewart points out problems faced by bats and what specific steps people have taken (or steps they could take) to help the bats, such as turning off wind turbines when the air is still or putting up bat boxes to house bats that can no longer find dead trees for shelter. The text clearly conveys the idea that people can make a difference in animal survival. Back matter includes a selected bibliography, and the endpapers carry range maps for the 12 species featured in the book. An effective introduction.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
