Reviews - What do customers think about What Is a Bat? (Science of Living Things)?

My son is batty about this book/CD  Dec 28, 2007
My 7 year old son listened to WHAT IS A BAT? on the included CD and was thrilled with it. The book and CD are better than I was expecting. The book is filled with high quality pictures/photos and it seems just the right amount of words on the page not to be overwhelming. I was impressed at the amount of information in the book. The table of contents includes:

What is a bat?
Bat family tree
A bat's body
Sight and smell
On the wing
Hanging out
Roosting habits
Bat food
Vampire bats
Hey baby!
Growing up
Bats in nature
Bat chat
Words to know

The CD takes just the right pace. Along with page-turning prompts, the child is also guided where to look on the page--whether at a particular picture or a certain colored text box--to synchronize with the narration. To reinforce the main points every once in a while a there is a "quick quiz." There is a pause between the question and the answer for the quick quizes so if a child needs a little more time to answer the question the CD player is easily paused.

According to the back of the book, there many other titles in "The Science of Living Things" series and I will definitely have to check them out.
