Bat Loves the Night

Our September selection for the Children's Braille Book Club features a tactile illustration of a pipistrelle bat, created by artist Ann Cunningham.

One Amazon reviewer says Bat Loves the Night is "non-fiction at its very best... a fascinating and intriguing book budding scientists will want to study, pore over, and read again and again."
