Pippa and her brother Click were born early in the summer in the rafters of an old red barn. They are part of a colony of big brown bats, which are common over much of North America. Beautifully illustrated with detailed drawings of the characters, the story tells of Pippa's hurdles and accomplishments as she learns to communicate, to fly using echolocation, and to feed and take care of herself. Pippa and the other young bats explore the world around them and even learn through challenging encounters with people, including two children who live on the farm. Based on the real lives of big brown bats, Pippa's First Summer provides an opportunity for readers to understand and appreciate these common nighttime neighbors.About the Author:
