Lily Wood's Bats is a close-up look at these flying creatures of the night. Kids will learn where bats live, what they eat, how they find prey by using echolocation, how they help people, and how people can help them.
The Scholastic Science Readers series was created especially to bring exciting nonfiction to beginning readers. Each book combines easy-to-read text with outstanding photographs to give kids an introduction to a favorite topic. With consultation from a reading specialist and child psychologist, the texts have been clearly leveled to match developing skills.
Every book has been carefully reviewed by an expert in the field for scientific accuracy, and includes an easy activity that a child can do for further exploration. Outstanding photography brings nature alive in these full-color books. "Take a Look" boxes give kids a special look at the inside of a wolf's den or a close-up of a bat's fur.
