Last week we read about bats, and wrote words about bats in our bat shape book. Please have your child read this to you. We learned that bats use "echolocation" to find their food. A bat is strong enough to hold his body upside down. Bats eat fruits, flowers, insects, frogs, and fish. A bat can eat more that 600 mosquitoes in one hour.
Some books we liked: Bats at the Library--Brian Lies, Bats at the Beach--Brian Lies, The Bat Who Wore Glasses--Goss and Lougabaugh, It Goes EEEEEEEEEEEEE!--Jamie Gilson, and Stellaluna--Jannell Cannon. We also read our Weekly Reader about Bats.
