Product Description

From Booklist

Meet the inch-long bumblebee bat, the smallest bat species in the world. Each left-hand page poses a question to a little bat, such as, Bumblebee Bat, how do you see at night? The bat answers,I make a squeaky sound that bounces back from whatever it hits. I see by hearing. Beginning each question with the bat's memorable name heightens the pleasing sense of pattern in the text, which offers information that children can understand, but avoids overwhelming them with too many facts. Wynne, who illustrated Caroline Arnold's Super Swimmers (2007), contributes an appealing set of pictures that complement the text. The large-scale artwork, appearing on right-hand pages, shows the bat flying, feeding, escaping from a predator, entering a cave, and finally sleeping. The bumblebee bat's tiny size is apparent only when it is shown next to a bee or a butterfly. Delicate ink drawings are brightened with watercolors and colored pencils. The last spread offers a little more information about bumblebee bats. Phelan, Carolyn --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2008 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book Feb. 21 2008
By riofriotex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This award, according to the American Library Association website, is "given annually to the author(s) and illustrator(s) of the most distinguished American book for beginning readers published in English in the United States during the preceding year...recognized for their literary and artistic achievements that demonstrate creativity and imagination to engage children in reading." "Hello, Bumblebee Bat" offers nine questions and answers about this inch-long bat's environment and habits. Lunde's repetitive question format, starting with the alliterative "bumblebee bat," is reminiscent of Bill Martin's "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" and is appropriate for early readers. Wynne's watercolor, ink, and colored pencil illustrations of this pig-nosed endangered Thai bat fill the right side of the double-paged spreads. Often a frightening creature to small children, the bats in these drawings often appear to be smiling. The book's patterns would make it a great read-aloud for younger children.

I bought this book for my four year old grandson. We both enjoyed it. It is very educational and inviting. Illustrations are really nice, and writing is appropriate for 3-7. Very good book for those little animal lovers!
