Review: Home in the Cave by Janet Halfmann

Baby Bat loves his cave home and never wants to leave it. While practicing flapping his wings one night, he falls, and Pluribus Packrat rescues him. They then explore the deepest, darkest corners of the cave where they meet amazing animals—animals that don't need eyes to see or colors to hide from enemies. Baby Bat learns how important bats are to the cave habitat and how other cave-living critters rely on them for food. Will Baby Bat finally venture out of the cave to help the other animals?

Received for review.

While not the most intellectually stimulating book I've read on the topic this was a cute enough children's book. It was fiction so it wasn't quite what I would have liked to have seen. The story was cute but not overwhelmingly wonderful. The illustrations by Shennen Bersani were well done and appropriate for the material.

Overall I would have to say this is a good bat story, and if you're looking for something on the fiction side this is a promising option.

★★☆☆ = Liked It
