Description

Whether they're darting across the evening sky in search of their breakfast or hanging from their upside-down roosts in caves, old mines, buildings, and trees, bats play a crucial role in the natural world but are all too often misunderstood by people who think of them as strange birds, flying rats, or Dracula in disguise. Karen Taschek's thoughtful and engaging exploration introduces young readers to the complicated and fascinating world of bats, both in their natural habitats and in the human imagination. Containing a wide range of bat-related topics, from their relationships with ecosystems to why you shouldn't be afraid of vampires, ""Hanging with Bats"" addresses echolocation, vocalization, migration patterns, and breeding habits with enthusiasm. Taschek also includes information on what to do if a bat gets in your house, building bat houses, and how to imitate bat 'talk.'
