If you love bats or the kids who are protecting them, then you will love Bat Citizens. While telling you a lot about bats, this book focuses on what kids are doing to help them. On almost every alternate page, you meet a new kid who is doing something to help the world better understand bats and their habitat.
I liked reading each kid’s story and was impressed with the things they are doing. For instance, Alexis Valentine started protecting bats when she was only in third grade! She even holds her own research permit in a national park!
There are lots of photographs, and the book seems well researched, as it includes a lot of facts and many different kids. It would be great for a research project, but most kids won’t sit down and read it cover to cover. It includes a glossary and a list of organizations that help bats. It also has a small poster of a hand-drawn, life-size Hoary Bat, although I would like the poster more if it was an actual photograph.
Overall, I think this book would be best for a school library or for kids who absolutely love bats.
