    Cute concept the bat at the zoo wantsattention and goes around checking out the other critters, and some of the pages you have to turn upside down to see from the bat s point of view We re fond of bats, so this should have been a five stara hit.But the bat goes to see the gorillas, and the great, big gorilla adults are covered in chimpanzee looking young monkeys with long tails As if baby gorillas had long tails that dropped off when they reached maturity And then the bat goes to see t Cute concept the bat at the zoo wantsattention and goes around checking out the other critters, and some of the pages you have to turn upside down to see from the bat s point of view We re fond of bats, so this should have been a five stara hit.But the bat goes to see the gorillas, and the great, big gorilla adults are covered in chimpanzee looking young monkeys with long tails As if baby gorillas had long tails that dropped off when they reached maturity And then the bat goes to see the lions, and it s three big males only I m no expert on primates of big cats, but I m pretty sure that three mature males is just not an appropriate grouping.I m not normally a stickler for accuracy in a picture book Both Batty and Where s Walrus depict zoos of a kind I ve never seen in real life, with tiny enclosures and no hint of an attempt at habitat And I m okay with an outdated stereotype of a zoo But I m not okay with casually mixing up different families of primates, and the tail thing about made my head explode.No doubt most people would read this book and not think twice And most people reading my review will think I m over reacting But out there in the world I know there must be someone else who is just as upset as I am that someone would call a tailed monkey a gorilla someone else who can never forgive the Reys for calling a chimpanzee a monkey Kids absorb and retain so much knowledge, I think we owe it to them not to be this sloppy.Library copy

    Reading this one on one wouldn t be as fun as with a group the book has to be turned upside down or is it right side up in order to be read in some spots It wold be a riot to do that will preschoolers.

    This is o.k.,,, but I found the illustrations a little off putting I hate to be critical, but this one isn t one I would use in story time for now It might grow on me though.

    This one might have been yet another fable about kind should be with kind and this alone would have raised bad signals However as it turns out, it ain t like that at all Batty is a winged bat who needs friends in his zoo area He tries to hang with the lions, tigers and bears, but oh my, the trouble this causes his bat senses Sun gets into his eyes too much, and the ruckus in the flea circus hurts his ears Bat hearing, BTW, is very sharp, even when tiny fleas pop out of tiny cannons into This one might have been yet another fable about kind should be with kind and this alone would have raised bad signals However as it turns out, it ain t like that at all Batty is a winged bat who needs friends in his zoo area He tries to hang with the lions, tigers and bears, but oh my, the trouble this causes his bat senses Sun gets into his eyes too much, and the ruckus in the flea circus hurts his ears Bat hearing, BTW, is very sharp, even when tiny fleas pop out of tiny cannons into tiny safety nets But only when Batty ishimself by simply hangin as, well, bats usually do on trees, can the other animals show him how they appreciate his efforts at friendship Sometimes courage comes from, not playing the Batman , but by being yourself as a way of batting down walls that separate us and befriending those you never thought would be friends It s a concept big enough to send a Batman like ADAM..West Lol Four starsBatty up

    Summary This is a story of a boisterous bat who wants the attention he sees the other animals receiving He finds himself in the places of other animals , never quite fitting in with their habitats and lifestyles In an upside down view , the bat finds his place Personal Response This book tells perfectly the story of how important it is to be yourself Trying so hard to be like everyone else , and failing, is what it took for him to realize people admired him in the exact spot he always b Summary This is a story of a boisterous bat who wants the attention he sees the other animals receiving He finds himself in the places of other animals , never quite fitting in with their habitats and lifestyles In an upside down view , the bat finds his place Personal Response This book tells perfectly the story of how important it is to be yourself Trying so hard to be like everyone else , and failing, is what it took for him to realize people admired him in the exact spot he always belonged

    I can t decide if this would be a good addition to my bat themed preschool story time or not The illustrations are cute, but there are several that may be distracting e.g a long tailed monkey on a gorilla s back, which just looks odd Really, the biggest distraction is that half the illustrations are upside down as if from Batty s perspective while he hangs While the concept is okay, it may make it hard to read out loud to a big group.


  7. Hannah Hayes Hannah Hayes says:

    This is a cute story that has a strong message about the importance of being yourself Batty feels like no one likes his exibit as much as all the other animals at the zoo, so he runs around all day trying to fit in with different animals When none of them work out he goes home and see all the animals there trying the be like him This story also has some animal facts like, bats hang upside down, penguins like to be in the cold, and lions like to be warm.

    Interesting illustration and set up, but not the greatest story.

    I loved this artist s Five Little Fiends so picked this up in the library today Batty is a cute main character and the concept was fun, but it ended rather abruptly.2.5 stars.

    Not my favorite book Batty is a bat at the zoo that wants to bepopular and tries to blend in at other animal exhibits When that doesn t work, he returns to his tree and discovers the other animals are hanging upside down in it The concept has been done before and better with Edward the Emu This book is hard to read as the text is right side up for the majority of the book but the pictures are from Batty s point of view upside down Instead of helping the story, this detracted from it Not my favorite book Batty is a bat at the zoo that wants to bepopular and tries to blend in at other animal exhibits When that doesn t work, he returns to his tree and discovers the other animals are hanging upside down in it The concept has been done before and better with Edward the Emu This book is hard to read as the text is right side up for the majority of the book but the pictures are from Batty s point of view upside down Instead of helping the story, this detracted from it for me
