Item description for Stellaluna by Janell Cannon...
Overview After Stellaluna accidently lands in a bird's nest, the birds raise the baby fruit bat as one of their own, and when she is finally reunited with her mother, she appreciates both her differences and her new friendships.
Publishers Description Knocked from her mother's safe embrace by an attacking owl, Stellaluna lands headfirst in a bird's nest. This adorable baby fruit bat's world is literally turned upside down when she is adopted by the occupants of the nest and adapts to their peculiar bird habits. Two pages of notes at the end of the story provide factual information about bats. "Delightful and informative but never didactic; a splendid debut."--"Kirkus Reviews"

Reviews - What do customers think about Stellaluna?
A beautifully illustrated, lovely story that my daughter adores! May 10, 2007
This was worth the purchase. My daughter has been in love with Stellaluna since the moment she discovered it at the library. She asked for this book for Easter in lieu of an Easter basket. It's a beautifully illustrated storybook. The story itself is wonderful; being both educational on a rudimentary level concerning the nature of fruit bats and so forth and for the moral of the story which is really about being true to oneself and living your life according to who you really are. We highly recommened this children's book.

This is one of the greatest childrens books I have read for a mostly unpopular animal. (A bat) It was warm, humorous, and delightful. A must read for all ages.
One of my favorite books! Mar 2, 2007
I love the book Stellaluna. It is a great book to read. I have always been a bat lover when I was young. I still love bats. I would love to have a pet bat! This is a great book and I hope you'll enjoy it!
