I am a dyslexia therapist who is always looking for interesting expository material for my students. The photos and layout are fantastic and motivate kids, for whom reading is difficult, to want to read the text. These books are interesting and fun.
How it looks on a Kindle HD Sept. 13 2014
By Kindles Forkids - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been disappointed at how poorly many picture books have been formatted for the Kindle HD. The whole reason I bought the HD over the cheaper, black and white kindle was for picture books, and unfortunately, it's impossible to know how the books will look before you purchase. This review is intended for those who wish to know about the quality of the formatting in advance.

The National Geographic Kids series is by far the best series of nonfiction books for kids that I have seen on the Kindle. The pictures are beautiful, and kids love reading the books. I gave Bats 4 stars for that reason, but there are some serious shortcomings to this book and the series as a whole. National Geographic is not using the new technology to its full potential.

The pictures are beautiful.
On most pages, the words are large enough to read on their own (without double tapping).
The pictures are beautiful.
Kids just love these books.

The dictionary and translation features are disabled. This is a huge omission for a nonfiction book with some difficult vocabulary words.
The book can only be viewed horizontally.
There is no professional narration. Kids love books like this, but there are so many difficult words that young kids really need an adult to read it to them. Otherwise, they're just looking at pictures. I would be so excited if National Geographic Kids would make Immersion Reading available for this series. That would enable ALL children to read their books.

6 year old loves this book - educational and fun Sept. 10 2013

My 6 year old is in to every kind of animal, but bats are always cool. We both learned a lot reading this book and while bats are still cool, it was good for him to learn that not all bats want to suck blood. :)
