Bats are often considered creepy night creatures that many would prefer to avoid, but Halfmann sheds light on an unknown circle of life. Readers discover creatures beyond bats, both in and outside of the cave, yet all connected by the nightlife in some way.
Home in the Cave not only provides an interesting story filled with lots of great facts along the way, but thanks to Sylvan Dell Publishing, readers can go beyond the book with activities featured on the final pages as well as a multitude of additional resources online. Learning expands the once creepy view, allowing bats to be seen as a necessary and interesting part of our world.
If you could describe bats in three words, what would they be? Can you guess at their contribution to the circle of life?
