Amara and the Bats
From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.
Reynolds helps readers explore fun bat facts through a girl's fascination with the flying mammals. It all begins with rescuing a bat in her attic, which awakens her interest so much that when she moves to a new town, she is determined to attract bats by helping to make the local park more bat friendly. To accomplish her goal, Amara joins an environmental club at her new school, and together they raise funds, build awareness, and recruit volunteers to help with their plan. Together with the park rangers, the kids and their adults build a wildlife reserve, which ultimately attracts bats back to the park, giving Amara "the best feeling in the world." Amara's unabashed love for bats will help challenge preconceived notions about the often-misunderstood animals, and even though this is fiction, it contains great reference content, including nicely labeled illustrations of identifiable species of bat. Amara's favorite facts appear at the end of the book, covering a wide range of information on bats such as different species, echolocation, bats' role in seed spreading, and building or installing bat houses to give the creatures a safe place to roost. Additional website sources are provided for further research. An inviting and informative picture book about wildlife conservation that might inspire kids to take action in their own communities.
