About this title


Book by Chris Holaves


Many people are afraid of bats. This book not only highlights this fear in a very poetic (and metrical) fashion, it does it in English and Spanish. The book addresses a reader's fears as well as teach a second language. At the end of Running With the Bats / Corriendo con los murcielagos is a glossary and facts about bats, all in English and Spanish. It is written for third to fifith grade level. Four Stars. --Book Ideas, John L. Hoh, Jr.

Running With the Bats is a bilingual book in dramatic verse about a boy who met bats on his way home from a baseball practice. The bats were feeding on insects, but the boy was frightened and thought they might want to harm him. The exciting drama of the boy running in the dark from the bats is heightened by the slightly spooky black and white, pen and ink illustrations of bats, bats, and more bats flying around this baseball-playing boy! Every page of Running with the Bats has a verse or several written in English and in Spanish. The unmistakable excitement of the story tempts the reader to explore both languages further. Running with the Bats is aimed at students in 3rd to 5th grade level. --Midwest Book Reviews, Bilingual Shelf

The book is absolutely delightful. A wonderful blending of captivating images and a great story. More children's books should be bilingual, especially if they are the quality of Running with the Bats. --Anne L. Birberick, Chair, Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures, Northern Illinois University
