Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 6: On the wing Bat wings come in different shapes and sizes. Some bats have long, narrow wings and others have short, broad wings. A bat's wing is made up of thin membrane. each wing has bones that make up the upper arm, forearm, four long fingers, and thumb. These bones are connected by membranes that the bat can fold in or stretch out. The membrane is attached to the sides of the bat's body and hind legs.

Review:

The Science of Living Things series demonstrates that Bobbie Kalman and her staff have turned out yet another informative and finely produced series of books. . . . this whole series would make a welcome addition to the elementary school library -- Kay Lehr, Fort Rouge School, Manitoba, Jan. 1999
