About this title


How does a bat use its fingers to help it fly? How can a bat sleep hanging upside down without falling on its head? How can a bat swoop through total darkness without running into things? Why do some bats have extremely long tongues? Why do some kinds of bats gather by the thousands inside caves and old mine tunnels? Outside and Inside Bats answers all these questions and many others. With stunning color photographs of different kinds of bats and clear, accessible text, Sandra Markle invites children to learn all about these unique and fascinating creatures. Curious young readers will delight in this close look at bats -- from the outside in!


Sandra Markle, author of more than 36 nonfiction books for children and a former elementary school teacher, brings her expertise to this magnificent exploration of the world of bats. The simple language and easy-to-follow explanations ("Check out the W-shaped back teeth of this insect-eating Nyctalus bat. They're just right for crushing and slicing crunchy insects into a lumpy bug pudding.") make Outside and Inside Bats a pleasure to read and a fun way to learn about one of the most curious animals in the world. The in-depth descriptions examine everything from the inner workings of a vampire bat's intestines to the structure of a bat's bones. You'll find out why some bats rely on hearing and others on sight and smell, why a bat's wings are different than a bird's, and how baby bats are born. The abundant close-up, full-color photographs and helpful glossary make this an excellent introduction to bats and to biology in general. (Ages 6 to 10)
