Take an amazing journey through the upside-down world of bats with Charlotte Milner's The Bat Book

Bright, bold and beautiful illustrations accompany fascinating facts about these furry flying mammals and their importance to the world we live in.
Following on from The Bee Book and The Sea Book, Charlotte Milner continues to highlight important ecological issues faced by our planet to children, this time focusing on the world's only flying mammals.

Our Thoughts:

We discovered Charlotte Milner's non-fiction picture books, The Sea Book and The Bee Book, just last year and loved both! They are gorgeously illustrated, packed full of interesting information, and make a great addition to any children's library!

The Bat Book is similarly fantastic, with scientifically accurate illustrations to go along with the plethora of information about our planets' 1,300 bat species.

Learn about the difference between megabats (some of which have five-foot wingspans!) and microbats and how they get around and catch their food in the dark. Find out how bats help the environment and keep ecosystems healthy by eating harmful insects, spreading seeds, and pollinating fruit trees!

Another thing I love about Milner's nonfiction books is how she explains the importance of these creatures and the effects that we have on them. She shares why bat populations are declining and what we can actively do to help, such as spreading seed bombs, growing bat-friendly plants in your gardens, and educating others about bats!
