Learning about bats book selection

This summer, we offered a Summer Reading Camp for selected students at my school, and one of the themes the children asked me to plan was a Bats and Birds Theme.  We were able to use quite a few resources from TPT,  and the children thoroughly enjoyed the week.  

Here are the titles I loved and used for the week:

  • Bats at the Beach
  • Bats at the Ballgame
  • Bats by Gail Gibbons (nonfiction)
  • Bats National Geographic Reader
  • Stellaluna
  • Fiona the Fruit Bat
