|Picture Book Number 1|
Bats at the Beach
Written and Illustrated by
How delicious-oh, how sweet,
To feel warm sand beneath our feet.
Quick, set up-spread blankets on sand!
We want to get going when fun is at hand.
We hurry down to test the ocean.
Don't forget the moon-tan lotion!
What's the first thing we should do?
So many games before night's through.
This is a delightful book written in rhyme about the adventures bats have at the beach. My students loved this book. The illustrations captivated them and kept them laughing. This is the first time in a read aloud that they did not want me to turn the page. They wanted to look at every detail Brian Lies added to every picture. So did I! On a scale of one to ten, my students gave this book a thumbs up and a big 10. It will definitely be a favorite for your child too.
