Body swoops low ... Thin wings flap ... Meet the bat! Brimming with vivid photos and scientific facts, Bats treats middle-grade researchers and wild animal lovers to a comprehensive profile of this marvelous flying mammal. Translated into North American Spanish, it covers zoology topics such as anatomy, diet, habitat, and life cycle, as well as species conservation efforts and the animal's relationship with humans throughout history. Sidebars, a range map, and a glossary support the main text, while an ancient Aztec creation story about the bat adds a cross-curricular cultural layer to the title.
